We are in the midst of the fall book awards season with several prestigious organizations naming the the best authors and books of 2010. Take a look and see if you agree with the decisions. Or perhaps find a new author you want to try.
The winner will be announced on Nov. 17th, but until then the National Book Foundation has a great listing of all the nominees in the categories of Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Young People’s Literature.
The 2010 PEN Literatry Awards have gone to a variety of talented writers, with Don Delillo winning the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievment in American Fiction.
The National Book Critics Circle 2010 awards won’t be announced until January, but you might want to take a look at the 2009 winners until then.
The Anthony Awards, which selects the best mystery writing of the year in several categories, has announced their list of winners.
