Books with the best-selling first-time book in the Newbery category or bestseller list have been nominated by readers for the 2020 Newbery awards.
The best-seller list is the same as the New York Times Bestseller list, but the awards are being held in New York, New Jersey and California.
The Newbery nominations are announced each January and the winners will be announced at the New Year’s Eve Ball in New Orleans.
The 2019 nominees included writers from the American novelist and literary critic Michael Chabon, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his new book, “The Corrections.”
The Pulitzer, which was first published in 1963, was named after Charles Pulitzer, a Pulitzer Prize winner and author of the Pulitzer prize-winning novel “The New York Review of Books” (1954).
Chabon’s book is one of the first novels by a non-fiction author that earned a Pulitzer.
The Pulitzer Prize has long been a favorite of the writer-philosophers and critics who are the backbone of the academy.
