Pulling from a sixty-year history, The National Book Award Foundation needs your vote in deciding the best book out of all the past winners of The National Book Award for Fiction. What is notable for Mississippians is that two of the six nominees are Mississippi authors: William Faulkner and Eudora Welty. Furthermore, three of the six are southerners when Flannery O’Connor is added.
Choosing may be a tough choice, but casting your vote on The National Book Awards website is easy. Voting is open through October 21st.
For further reading, UPM has a large selection of Eudora Welty and William Faulkner titles.
