    • The author must be a current member of the Mid-South Sociological Association, and must have been a member for at least three years.

Be sure to include the following in your nomination:

    • The complete citation for the book (author/s, date published, title, publisher)
    • Author/s contact information (email, affiliation, phone number if possible).
    • Publisher contact information (e.g., contact person, phone number, and ISBN).
    • A brief description of the book and why you believe it should be nominated.
