Working my way through the Man Booker Prize longlist is going well, but several will not be published in the United States until later in the year.
Turning to award winners closer to home, I found the site of winners from the National Book Award with commentary on every winner since 1950 – a great resource for books I have missed reading and a reminder of some great ones I remember reading.

And for nonfiction – from one of my favorite bookstores:

The longlist of finalists for 2016 will be announced soon in September.

Ive never followed the National Book Award – mainly because I’m not living in USA so don’t see any references to it. Is it one that publishers can submit books for consideration?
Yes, publishers submit the books – American publishers and American authors.
