Straight from the National Book Awards fabulous ceremony at the opulent Cipriani Wall Street where the literati met in what looked more like the Oscars than a book club, we are privy to the 2012 National Book Award winners. Congratulations to everyone. Always a treat when books are celebrated.
Just read in the GalleyCat, that the National Book Awards are Tonight!
The late Anthony Shadid, Oklahoma City born writer and journalist, is a non-fiction finalist for House of Stone. Hope he will receive the award. Morning Media Menu podcast is supposed to announce the winners in the morning. An alternative to the rather high-brow offerings of the National Book folks would be the Goodreads Choice Awards. The categories alone are enough to draw you in.
