Nonfiction Friday is a link-up where you can find all of the awesome nonfiction happenings of the week.
- I’ve been too absorbed in other nonfiction things (and life things) during Nonfiction November to do these posts and a lot has happened in that time! For starters, The National Book Award Nonfiction winner has been announced and it is….The Yellow House by Sarah Broom. This is the only nominee I didn’t read and I’m actually still on my library waitlist, so hopefully I’ll get to tell you about this one soon.
- In other prize news, The Five by Hallie Rubenhold has scored a much deserved win of The Baillie Gifford Prize for Nonfiction. I enjoyed hearing about the selection process in this interview with one of the judges. And I’m hoping to see The Five top the list in the Goodreads Choice awards too – to be announced Dec 10.
