BILLINGS -

Seven Montana authors are finalists in the 2013 High Plains Book Awards.

The awards reflect writing of the High Plains Region: Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, and parts of Canada. According to Billings Public Library Assistant Director Dee Ann Redman, this year there is a record-breaking number of nominations, about 180.

"We've got a wealth of literature that is about our region, our landscape the type of people who are our neighbors, and whether these are people who are writing about this region or people who are from this region, their writing is influenced by the landscape and the people," says Redman.

There will be an awards banquet for winners on October 26th in conjunction with the High Plains BookFest at the Yellowstone Art Museum; winners receive a $500 cash prize.
