The 2013 National Book Award Finalists were announced just the other day, Wednesday, October 16.
You can find the list of finalists in the Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Young People's Literature categories in an article posted by Nora Rawlinson on EarlyWord at: http://tinyurl.com/lc3tf6e
The winners will be announced on November 20.
Just FYI ... I checked the catalog and SCCCLD owns (or has On Order) all of the finalist titles.
