Trophy-Winning Titles

winnersticker.gifI don’t always read all of the award-winning books. But it’s fun, isn’t it, to see which titles garner the big bounties? The 2006 National Book Awards were just announced and I figured you, like me, would to take a look at the honor roll.

For those who wish to read any of the winning books, links are provided. If you would like to watch the awards ceremony, it’s being broadcast on Book TV this weekend.

And the winners are:

Fiction

The Echo Maker by Richard Powers

Nonfiction

The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan

Poetry

Splay Anthem by Nathaniel Mackey

Young People’s Literature

The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol. 1: The Pox Party by M.T. Anderson
