Pen/Faulkner Finalists

The Pen/Faulkner Foundation recently announced the finalists for the organization’s 2010 Pen/Faulkner Award. One of the top three national fiction awards, the Pen/Faulkner was founded in 1980 by National Book Award winner Mary Lee Settle. It is considered the largest peer-juried award for fiction (writers honoring fellow writers) in the U.S. The winner, who will receive $15,000, will be announced March 23. A special ceremony honoring the winner and all nominees will follow on May 8 at the Folger Shakespeare Library here in D.C.

Among the nominees available at our library are:

War Dances by Sherman Alexie

The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver

A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore

Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead
