The Pulitzer Prize winners were announced Monday. Apparently more is better as the average length of the five winning books (including the 80 page poetry winner) is 341 pages.

We’ve put a list of all the winners and finalists after “read more” below. If lugging around a huge book is daunting, download it.

LMCTV requests your help by asking that you take their online survey. The purpose of the survey is to gather information about the local community cable programming and media services provided by LMCTV. The information gathered will help to determine if the existing local programming and media services are adequate and appropriate, and to identify changes that might be made to meet current and future needs in the interests of residents, community groups, educational institutions, businesses and local government. And if you take the survey online, LMCTV will enter your name for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card. The online survey is available now through May 6.
Congratulations to the winning team – THE SPELLBINDERS (Barbara Grae, Dorothy Greene & Rose Silvestro) – returning champions who won this year’s competition by correctly spelling ‘aberrant’. The winners are pictured here with Nancy Seligson (Mamaroneck Town Supervisor), Lorraine Walsh (Mayor, Village of Larchmont), and George Latimer (Westchester County Executive). Thanks to everyone who participated, came as a spectator, and special thanks to the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library for making the BEE possible.
