Abca_2


The National Book Foundation has just announced the nominees for this year's prestigious NATIONAL BOOK AWARD and in the Young People's Literature category there it is: AMERICAN BORN CHINESE by Gene Yang!

As far as I know, it's the first time the NBA has ever nominated a graphic novel.

Congratulations, Gene!

I heard this yesterday. Congratulations!

Just a wonderful book.

Both Deogratias and American Born Chinese have easily been the best graphic novels this year. Congratulations to First Second and Gene Yang on the National Book Award nomination as it is much deserved!

MORE PEOPLE SHOULD BE READING THESE!
