National Book Award Winners Announced
Posted by: Courtney Jones

lord-of-misruleThe National Book Awards ceremony was full of surprises, with Jaimy Gordon’s win the foremost. She was met with shocked silence from most of the audience, which mirrored her own reaction. In her speech she stated ”I am totally unprepared and I am totally surprised…” So, prepare yourselves, for the winners are:

Fiction

Lord of Misrule, by Jaimy Gordon

NonFiction

Just Kids, by Patti Smith

Poetry

Lighthead, by Terrance Hayes

Young People’s Literature

Mockingbird, by Kathryn Erskine

    Gordon’s win may be a surprise but, according to Bill’s review, it’s well deserved! Donna gave Smith a great review, too.
