National Book Awards Longlists Announced

Article by Jeremy

The literary awards season has begun! The National Book Foundation, presenter of the National Book Awards, has announced ten titles in four categories as the semi-finalists for the prestigious prize. The shortlist will be published on October 13, 2016 and the winners will be announced on November 16, 2016.

Browsing through the longlist, we're pleased to see some store favorites make the cut: THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD by Colson Whitehead, IMBECILES by Adam Cohen, THE SELECTED POEMS OF DONALD HALL, and GHOST by Jason Reynolds, to name a few. We're also very excited to be hosting two of the longlisted authors in the store this fall: fiction nominee Paulette Jiles will kick off her book tour for THE NEWS OF THE WORLD on Tuesday, October 4 at 7pm, and poetry nominee Monica Youn will be here with BLACKACRE on Friday, November 4 at 7pm. Mark your calendars now and join us!
