I love nonfiction.
(Don't misunderstand me; I love fiction, too. But I love nonfiction.)
I was happy this year, then, to serve on not one but
two nonfiction book judging panels.
One was for children's nonfiction picture books (Cybils) and
one panel was for adult nonfiction books (Indie Lit Award).
The Cybils finalists are here.
The Cybils Awards will be announced tomorrow.
The 2010 Short List for Non-Fiction
was selected earlier in the year:
■The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
■The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson
■Let’s Take the Long Way Home by Gail Caldwell
■Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
■At Home by Bill Bryson
And now...the envelope, please....
