Karen Dalton-Beninato: Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival Rocks. That Is All.
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
In That Is All, former literary agent John Hodgman sets the end of the world at a New Orleans lit festival. If that's where it all unfurls, what a way to go. At last weekend's Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival, lovers of theater, literature, modern authors and the written word in general assembled from all around the world. My fest week kicked off at The Historic New Orleans Collection with author Moira Crone's session on shaping speculative fiction.

Manners Matter in Minnetonka
Minnetonka Patch - almost 5 years
Second graders displayed their proper manners for parents and grandparents at the annual tea party hosted by Mrs. Lovelace’s class. “When you get a job, you need to have good manners,” said second grader Viviana Gonzalez.  “Viviana was excited about this,” said parent Irene Gonzalez.  “They’ve been talking about the tea party since the first day of school.” “I tell the kids, good manners will take you far in life,” said Groveland Elementary teacher Sara Lovelace.  Teaching in Minnetonka schools for 25 years, Lovelace noticed something. “Families are so busy these days with sports and activities,” Lovelace said. “I saw less emphasis on manners and a lack of respect toward adults.”  Seven years ago, she began incorporating manners into her curriculum. “Kids are not born with manners,” explained Lovelace. “Manners are learned.” What have the children learned this year? “Don’t put your elbows on the table,” said Chloe Rieger.  “Be respectful to others,” said D ...

No fiction Pulitzer: The problem wasn't the books
blank - almost 5 years
It was likely voting procedure, not a lack of excellence, that prevented the granting of a prize For the first time since 1977, the Pulitzer Prize Board has not chosen a winner in the fiction category. Susan Larson, one of three fiction jurors who each read 300 submissions prior to forwarding three finalists, announced that the jurors were "shocked," "angry," and "very disappointed." She added that the jurors felt so strongly about all three finalists — "Swamplandia!" by Karen Russell, "The Pale King" by David Foster Wallace, and "Train Dreams" by Dennis Johnson — that they would have been happy had any been selected.

No fiction Pulitzer given for 1st time in 35 years
Blue Ridge Now - almost 5 years
NEW YORK (AP) — Unable to choose a fiction winner, Pulitzer Prize officials made a decision guaranteed to satisfy no one. They passed. For the first time in 35 years, no fiction award was given. Readers will have to look to other awards to decide which book was the year's most notable literary work. Booksellers will have to hope that other winners announced Monday, including the late Manning Marable's biography of Malcolm X, will attract some of the customers who might have sought the fiction winner. Pulitzer judges had narrowed the field to three finalists, including David Foster Wallace's "The Pale King," a novel assembled from notes he left behind at the time of his suicide in 2008. Also cited were Karen Russell's "Swamplandia" and Denis Johnson's novella "Train Dreams." "It's wonderful that the Pulitzer nominating committee recommended 'The Pale King' to the judges," the book's editor, Michael Pietsch of Little, Brown and Company, wrote in an email. "Anything that brings r ...

No Winner For Pulitzer Prize For Fiction
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
This year, nobody was good enough. The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is one of the most prestigious awards in American literature. Previous fiction winners have included Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Jennifer Egan and Philip Roth. Publishers submit works according to published guidelines; winners for the literary categories must be U.S. citizens, except for the History category, where the subject of the book must be U.S. History. The jurors for this year's Fiction prize were Susan Larson, the former book editor of The Times-Picayune, Maureen Corrigan, book critic for Fresh Air on NPR, and the novelist Michael Cunningham. They submitted three unranked finalists to the Board: David Foster Wallace's "The Pale King", Karen Russell's "Swamplandia" and Denis Johnson's "Train Dreams." So for the first time since 1977, by failing to come to a majority decision, the Pulitzer Board's conclusion is that no book is worthy of the prize. UPDATE: Susan Larson, the chair of ...
