Saraband shortlisted for Trade Publisher of the Year 2017

23 January 2017

Congratulations and good luck to member publisher Saraband on being shortlisted for Trade Publisher of the Year at the IPG Independent Publishing Awards.

The citation says that:

'Saraband could have had a tough 2016 after the closure of its sales partner Faber Factory Plus, but instead it achieved a dramatic increase in turnover. Graeme Macrae Burnet's Man Booker shortlisted His Bloody Project was its standout bestseller, but it had a diverse range of other hits, driven by excellent collaboration with retailers and some non-traditional channels. "Saraband has amazing energy and great focus in a challenging market," judges said.'

Saraband is up against Faber & Faber, Icon Books and Oneworld. The winner will be announced at a gala dinner during the IPG's Annual Spring Conference on Thursday 9 February, hosted by author, playwright and speaker Damian Barr.
