Last week, the National Book Foundation (sponsor of the National Book Award) made the longlist of titles being considered for the award available to the public for the first time ever.  Ten titles have been selected for consideration in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and young people's literature categories.  Finalists will be announced on October 16th and winners for each category on November 20th.  By making the longlist public, the National Book Foundation hopes to expand the reading audience for all of the great candidates.  Check out the longlisted titles in the library catalog:  Fiction - Nonfiction - Poetry - Young People's Literature  (Beyond the Catalog requests can be placed for any titles not owned.)
