The National Book Awards is one of the nation’s most prestigious literary accolades. Within a decade of its founding in 1950, the NBAs acknowledged the work of writers such as Hannah Arendt, W.H. Auden, Saul Bellow, Truman Capote, Rachel Carson, Ralph Ellison, William Faulkner, Marianne Moore, Vladimir Nabokov, Flannery O’Connor, Katherine Anne Porter, Adrienne Rich, Eudora Welty, and William Carlos Williams—authors who have helped shape the foundation of American literature. This tradition continues, with the NBAs today honoring a diverse community of writers including Elizabeth Acevedo, Robert A. Caro, Masha Gessen, Terrance Hayes, Ibram X. Kendi, László Krasznahorkai, Jacqueline Woodson, Jesmyn Ward, Colson Whitehead, and Charles Yu, among many others.
