SIBA Book Award is an American South literary award given by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA), first awarded in 1999.[1] Nominated books must be southern in nature or by a southern author, have been published the previous year, and have been nominated by a SIBA-member bookstore or one of their customers. Voting categories include fiction, non-fiction, poetry, cooking and children's literature. The award was originally called the "SEBA" Book Award.[1]

The first awards were given in 1999.[2] From 1999 through 2007 winners were chosen by popular vote through an online voting mechanism.[2] Starting in 2008 winners were chosen from the list of finalists by a jury of SIBA booksellers, instead of by popular vote.[2]
