present-over-perfectThe Association of Logos Bookstores announced this year’s Books, Author and Representatives of the Year. The awards, presented at Unite 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio, honor outstanding work in the Christian publishing and retailing fields.

Each spring, members of the Association of Logos Bookstores nominate and then select Books of the Year winners in seven different categories, as well as an Author of the Year whose body of work exemplifies the power of books to change lives forever. Finally, Christian retail store managers nominate 22 outstanding field and inside representatives, who are honored for their service to the stores.

Executive director Becky Gorczyca was proud to honor 2017’s winners.

"We consider it a privilege each year to acknowledge, encourage and thank these other participants in our shared mission in Christian retailing," Gorczyca said.

Anne Graham Lotz received the award for Author of the Year. The seven Books of the Year were James K.

B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.) for Children’s Picture Books; and Makato Fujimure’s Silence and Beauty (InterVarsity Press) for Christianity/Culture.

The 17 representatives honored for their work were Gary Sipes (B&H), Connie Hall (Crossway), Steven Bartch (David C Cook), Robert Splinter (Group Publishing), Dean Cook (HarperCollins), Regina Hughes (HarperCollins), Gary Comeforo (HarperCollins), Jeff Miller (HarperCollins), Jerry Gortmaker (Noble Marketing), Lane Davis (Noble), Ryan Garrett (Noble), Ted Terry (Noble), Harley Rollins (Rollins Pilot), Trevor Rollins (Rollins Pilot), Mary Lou Alexander (Spring Arbor), Dave Salzmann (Tyndale) and Troy Baker (Tyndale).
