This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone (Saga) and The Deep by Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson & Jonathan Snipes (Saga) are on the six-title shortlist for the 2020 Brooklyn Public Library Literary Prize. The finalists were selected from 110 works nominated by Brooklyn librarians. Linda E. Johnson, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Public Library, says,
From speculative fiction to reportage, each of the shortlist titles our librarians have chosen is unflinchingly brave. These books represent what readers are craving in 2020: to better understand how our world has come to be, so that we might imagine it differently.
Winners in fiction/poetry and non-fiction categories will each receive $5,000 and will be announced in a virtual ceremony on November 20, 2020. For more information, see the Brooklyn Public Library website.
