2018 Pulitzers Announced

Interested in reading the stuff that won a Pulitzer this year? We’ve got you covered. There’s a display in the Main Reading Room of the winning books (and the finalists). Can’t make it to the Library?  You can see the display with links to the catalog right here online. But that’s not all. What about the winning newspaper and magazine articles?
You can read almost all the award-winning coverage through our web page. Looking for the Public Service winners? Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein article in the October 23, 2017 New Yorker is available through RBdigital Magazines on our eBooks, etc. page. Just scroll down and click on “show more back issues.” Want to see Twohey and Kantor’s New York Times articles? Search for them in Infotrac Newstand on our Online Resources page (under the Research tab above).

Here’s a list of the other prize categories and how you can get to the winners:

  • Investigative Reporting – Staff of the Washington Post. You can search for individual articles going back to 2009 in Infotrac Newstand. If you want to know what the Post is like on daily basis, you can read every issue for the past 90 days in PressReader (available on eBooks, etc.).
  • Explanatory Reporting – Although you can’t read the articles that won it the Pulitzer, you can read the continuing coverage of the border wall in The Arizona Republic in PressReader. We don’t have USA Today Network.
  • National Reporting – The New York Times and The Washington Post are available in Infotrac Newstand. Today’s Washington Post is in PressReader.
  • Feature Writing – Since when does GQ win a Pulitzer? Anyway you can read Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah’s article on Dylann Roof in RBdigital Magazines. Click on “show more back issues” and look for the September 2017 issue.  You can look good while you’re doing it, too.
  • Criticism – We’ve got New York magazine going back to May 2017. Just go to RBdigital Magazines and “show more back issues.”
  • Breaking News Reporting, Local Reporting, Commentary, and Editorial Writing – Sorry, but we don’t have immediate access to: The Press Democrat of Santa Rosa, Calif.; The Cincinnati Enquirer; Alabama Media Group; and The Des Moines Register. If you want a specific article, however, our crack Reference staff at the Information Desk can get it for you.

If this is all gibberish to you, make an appointment for a Tech Tuesday and a Librarian will sit down with you and get you started. If Tuesdays don’t work, contact Head of Reference Liam Hegarty at whegarty@wlsmail.org or 834-2281 x. 114, and we’ll work something out.

Finally, just a reminder, the Pulitzer-winning books and the runner ups are on a separate page.

Oh yes, almost forgot. You can stream Kendrick Lamar’s prize-winning album, Damn, via Hoopla (which is also on the eBooks, etc. page).
