Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 15, 2008

The National Book Award nominees were announced today, and some Creekview favorite authors are on the Young People’s Literature list. Of course, there are also lists for Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry, but, who cares? We only care about our people! Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Grizzly favorites Speak and Twisted, was nominated for her new book Chains. E. Lockhart, author of this year’s Georgia Peach Book Award nominee, The Boyfriend List, in addition to other favs like Dramarama and The Boy Book, is another nominee for The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. Also nominated was Kathi Appelt for The Underneath (she’s the author of the great short story collection Kissing Tennessee and Other Stories from the Stardust Dance). Judy Blundell was nominated for What I Saw and How I Lied. The final young adult author nominee was Tim Tharp for The Spectacular Now. Tim’s other novels include Knights of the Hill Country and Falling Dark. The winners will be named on November 19.
