For the second year in a row, the Book Fair, in partnership with the National Book Foundation and with the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, welcomes the Finalists and Winners of the prestigious National Book Foundation’s National Book Awards. Previous winners of the Award—including William Carlos Williams, Joyce Carol Oates, and William Faulkner—comprise a who’s who of American literature. Following the awards ceremony on November 18, at which the winners will be announced, all twenty Winners and Finalists in the categories of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and young people’s literature will travel to Miami for this remarkable gathering of literary talent.
