I want to draw your attention to a note from The Pulitzer Prize website:
The 2010 Pulitzer Prizewinners and Nominated Finalists in all categories will be announced on April 12, 2010 at 3 p.m. Eastern daylight time. Finalists are not announced in advance. Winners’ names, photos and bios will be posted on this Website at 3 p.m., along with all winning photographs and cartoons. Links to winning news stories will also be provided where available. The 2010 Prizes are awarded for work published, produced or premiered in 2009.
We’ll let you know as soon as we hear the winner and finalists in the Fiction category. Click here for a list of past winners. Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout won last year (one of Lynn’s favorite books) and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz won the year before (one of my favorite books).
What book do you think should win the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction? Remember that it has to be a work of fiction published in 2009. According to the Pulitzer website, the prize will go to “distinguished fiction by an American author, preferably dealing with American life.”
