And the winner is...

James McBride won the National Book Award for fiction tonight for The Good Lord Bird, about a young slave in the 1850s who meets and travels with abolitionist John Brown. (Woot! I hope our Riverhead colleagues are clinking glasses right now! They deserve it. )

The winners in the other categories are: 


Nonfiction: George Packer for The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America.

Poetry: Mary Szybist for Incarnadine.

Young People's Literature: Cynthia Kadohata for The Thing About Luck.

Excited for the winners & excited to dive into these books. Have you guys ready any of them?

Cheers,

 

Nevena
