Come to the library for an interesting and informative community book discussion of the Vermont Reads book Last Night at the Telegraph Club.
One biography each year is awarded a Pulitzer Prize, but these character studies wouldn't count - each is a Pulitzer-winning work of fiction, with portions based on one person's real life story. Wallace Stegner's Pultizer Prize-winning novel Angle of Repose is a story of discovery—personal, historical, and geographical.
Established by a newspaper publisher and coinciding with the founding of a journalism school at Columbia University, the Pulitzer Prizes have continually recognized excellence in journalism. The books in this series, comprised of Pulitzer-winning reporting and research, dig deep, revealing facts and stories that continue to be relevant years after they were brought to the surface. Chosen book: Norman Mailer, The Armies of the Night.
