The two runners-up, Jaya Nair and Tara Kraft, will receive checks of $100 each, which were provided by the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers Association and by Mike Slicker, Proprietor of Lighthouse Books. The first-prize winner, Autumn Howard, will receive a check of $500, which was provided by Lee J. Harrer.
