Llewellyn's 2011 COVR Award Winners

The following entry was originally posted by Christy on the Llewellyn blog for booksellers, MoonLit on July 8, 2011.

Each year, the Coalition of Visionary Retailers (COVR) selects winners that best represent mind/body/spirit products. The Visionary Awards are judged by retailers and seasoned professionals who evaluate each title based upon content, presentation, and their own knowledge of the industry. At the INATS banquet in June, four Llewellyn titles were honored.
