Here's the longlist for the 2016 National Book Award for Fiction. Among the finalists are several of our recent visiting authors including Elizabeth McKenzie (Portable Veblen), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn) and a special shout-out to Meridian, Mississippi native Brad Watson (Miss Jane). Congrats to all the finalists and good luck.
At 7am on the east side of the square in front of City Hall and Square Books Jr. we'll have tents so drivers can get a biscuit and coffee to go along with a personally inscribed copy of Big Bad Breakfast from John Currence himself. John and his Big Bad Breakfast crew are teaming up with Square Books to start your day off right. The most important signing of the day.
