Thirty Books in Thirty Days

by Eric Banks | Feb-04-2010

Beginning today, Critical Mass will highlight on a daily basis the thirty books selected as the 2009 finalists for our annual awards in Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Criticism, Biography, and Autobiography. A full list of the finalists in each of six categories can be found here. Don’t forget to plan on attending the free readings by our finalists at the New School in New York on Wednesday, March 10, and our awards ceremony, on Thursday, March 11.
