2019 National Book Award Shortlists Announced
It’s that time of year again! The National Book Awards long list has been whittled down to its official shortlist. The competition is fierce this year- of the five fiction finalists, one author has previously won the Man Booker Prize while two others were previously Pulitzer finalists. As for non fiction, there are memoirs, essays and histories abounding! The finalists in
translated literature include works originally written in Arabic, Finnish, French, Hungarian and Japanese. The poetry finalists are varied and intriguing, to say the very least. A number of these titles are available through the Larchmont Library and also in Overdrive, if you’d prefer to brush up on your National Book Awards reading in digital form.
