NEW YORK (AP) — Kate DiCamillo and David Levithan were among the 10 authors included on the first-ever long-list of finalists for the National Book Awards, part of a new nominating process that prize organizers hope will lead to increased attention and sales.
DiCamillo and Levithan were nominees in the Young People's Literature category, announced Monday by the National Book Foundation. Over the next three days, 10 finalists for each of the remaining three competitive categories — poetry, nonfiction and fiction — will be announced. On Oct. 16, the nominees will be narrowed to five for each category. The winners will be announced at a Nov. 17 ceremony in New York City.
Others in the running for young people's literature include Cynthia Kadohata, Meg Rosoff and Tom McNeal.
