I think today I will make Sally faint by posting my first-ever blog. This is Roberta and hello to one and all! About twenty minutes ago, the Pulitzer Prizes were announced and so I thought I'd forward the book winners on to everyone:

Fiction - Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
History - The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family by Annette Gordon-Reed
Biography - American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by Jon Meacham
Poetry - The Shadow of Sirius by W.S. Merwin
General Nonfiction - Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II by Douglas A. Blackmon

If I had Sally's or Jennie's skills, I'd include photos of these books but I'm taking this blogging thing one step at a time so that's all you're getting from me today. Next time, I promise to do better!

  1. Hi Roberta, you did a great job! Good to know who the winners are. Speaking of winners - did you say Broadway Books is on Facebook?? That is how another book store (whose name I will not mention) won the Reading Local favorite bookstore poll (in my opinion) - they have lots of 'friends' on FB and got the word out! BB on FB - got to check it out.

  2. Hi Roberta, you did a great job! Thanks for listing this year's Pulitzer Prize winners. Will have to check some out. Speaking of winners- the bookstore that won the Reading Local favorite bookstore poll (whose name I will not mention) has lots of 'friends' on Facebook which helped them get the word out. Now I hear BB is on FB - way cool. I'll have to check that out too.

  3. Roberta , you did a great job! Looking forward to checking out some of the Pulitzer Prize winners and BB on Facebook. That is way cool!
