Practically every control in Windows Forms has a handy Tag property that you can assign what ever you want to.

So you can assign those book XmlElement items that you extracted earlier to each one of their corresponding list items.

And then when you click an ok button, check the listbox.SelectedItem.Tag property -- that'll be whatever you assigned to the tag.



Edit: sorry, that's ListView I'm thinking of.

ListBox lets you assign any type of object, so you can make a custom class and override the ToString method to have it show the right text in the list box.

So make a class like this:
class Book
{
public Book(string name, string publisher)
{
this.name = name;
this.publisher = publisher;
}

string name, publisher;

public string Publisher
{
get { return publisher; }
}

public string Name
{
get { return name; }
}

public override string ToString()
{
//Just show the name
return name;
}
}

When you add an item to the list box, do something like this:
listBox.Add(new Book(element["Name"], element["Publisher"]);

When you want to get the publisher for the selected book, do this:
publisher = (listBox.SelectedItem as Book).Publisher;
