National Book Award Winners Announced

For the record, two days before the award was announced last night, I happened upon the one and only Nancy Pearl and asked her who was going to win the fiction award this year, and she called it. Next year, I'm going to get her picks and put some money on her favorite.

Congratulations to the winners.

Winner for Fiction: Pete Matthiessen's Shadow Country.

Winner for Nonfiction: Annette Gordon-Reed's The Hemingses of Monticello.

Winner for Poetry: Mark Doty's Fire to Fire.

Winner for Young People's Literature: Judy Blundell's What I Saw and How I Lied.
