National Book Awards

Award News seems to be the theme of today, so I thought I'd add that the winners of the 2010 National Book Awards were also just announced.

According to the NBA website, 1,115 books were submitted for the National Book Awards. , which were whittled down to five finalists in each category. And the winners are...

Fiction: Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon (McPherson)

Nonfiction: Just Kids by Patti Smith (Ecco/HarperCollins)

Poetry: Lighthead by Terrance Hayes (Penguin)

Young People's Literature: Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
