Northeast Minnesota Book Awards Nominations Open

Hard to believe but nominations are now open for the 24th Annual Northeastern Minnesota Book Award (NEMBA)!  First, congratulations to the committed folks at the UMD Library and the Duluth Public Library who have kept this significant initiative strong and growing for nearly a quarter century.

 

The award is open to books that are substantially representative of northeastern Minnesota in the areas of history, culture, heritage or lifestyle.  For this competition the area is defined as Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Kanabec, Koochiching, Lake, Pine and St. Louis counties.

 

Deadline for nominations is February 1, 2012.  Authors will be honored on May 17, 2012 at a reception on the UMD campus.

 

All of the details are spelled out on the NEMBA website or available from UMD Library, Library Administration Office, 416 Library Drive, Duluth, MN 55812, libnemba@d.umn.edu or 218 726 6843.
