BBC News - Confusion over US National Book Awards nominee

| No Comments

Shortlisted Or Not?

An author mistakenly nominated for the National Book Awards in the US but who was allowed to stay on the shortlist has now been asked to withdraw.

Children's author Lauren Myracle's book Shine appeared on the shortlist last week for young people's literature.

But the book was withdrawn after the National Book Foundation cited a "miscommunication" with the judges.

Shortly after, the Foundation welcomed Shine back into the category. But by Friday, Myracle was asked to withdraw.
