Awarded each year by the National Book Foundation, the National Book Award recognizes literary excellence across 5 categories: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translated Literature, and Young People’s Literature. With a mission to “increase the readership and appreciation of great writing in America”, the National Book Awards have quickly gained a reputation as one of the most prestigious literary prizes in the world.
