Looking for the perfect book to either give as a gift or to get as a gift... The National Book Awards might be a great place to start. The 2009 winners have been announced, and, as always, the categories are broad enough to please almost any reader: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Young People's Literature. If you aren't looking to purchase the book, stop by Bailey Library. We have a great selection of National Book Award winners both past and present.
