The Great Believers has been shortlisted for the National Book Award, and for the ALA’s Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction. I’m utterly thrilled for both, and nervous and overwhelmed and grateful. The NBA award will be announced on Wednesday, November 14th, and you can live stream the ceremony from the National Book Foundation FB page or website, starting at 7:20 ET. First winners will be announced around 8:15 ET. The Carnegie medal winner will be announced in January!
