NBA Finalists Announced Print

Jacket covers from the five fiction NBA finalists

Those in the book world know that NBA means - not National Basketball Association - but the National Book Awards!  Finalists for 2013 were announced on Wednesday, whittling the longlist down to five contenders in each category (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and young people's literature).  Check out the finalists in the library catalog - still time to read before winners are announced on November 20th.  Louise Erdrich was last year's fiction winner for The Round House and Katherine Boo in nonfiction for Behind the Beautiful Forevers.  When you are at a loss for some new good reading, past award winners are great candidates!
