James McBride, the surprise winner of the National Book Award for âThe Good Lord Bird,â was instantly elevated to a level of literary celebrity that he has yet to enjoy throughout a long career in writing.
One more week of school and I’ll be free to read what I want. First up is James McBride’s newest book “The Good Lord Bird.” Thanks to M. Tyler for telling me today that it won The National Book Award! I’m so glad I got to meet him this summer at the Bmore Book Fest and get him to sign my book. I actually coughed up the courage to tell him I write memoir and he gave me 2 book suggestions. Congratulations to Mr. McBride!!!!!
