Son of Just Announced: The Pulitzer Prizes

Also on Monday, the 2009 Pulitzer Prize winners were announced. They are:

Fiction: Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout
History: The Hemingses of Monticello, by Annette Gordon-Reed
Biography: American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, by Jon Meacham
General Non-Fiction: Slavery By Another Name, by John Blackmon
Poetry: Shadow of Sirius, by W. S. Merwin
Drama: Ruined, by Lynn Nottage.
(By the way, Gordon-Reed's book also won the National Book Award last fall -- a pretty impressive twofer.)

Other than the drama winner -- which does not appear to be in book form at this time -- all these books are either in stock or available to be ordered at Accent on Books.

More about the winning titles -- as well as the runners-up in each category -- can be found at the Pulitzer website .
