Booker Prize Awarded

 The Booker Prize is awarded to a author from England or the Commonwealth of the British Isles. You can read about the Booker Prize here.  You can also read about the short and long list. This is a nice website about the authors and their books.  A Jewish author, Howard Jacobson  won the prize for his novel the Finkel Question.  You can read my thoughts on Bagels, Books and Schmooze.

Here is a article by WSJ, and another article by the Associate Press.

On another note, The National Book Award short list was announced.  Another, Jewish author was recognized for her work.  The Great House by Nicole Krauss.

Congratulations to both of these authors!!!
