Saroyan Prize finalists selected


"Thirty books—half fiction, the other half nonfiction—have been selected as finalists for the 2008 William Saroyan International Prize for Writing. Winners in both the fiction and nonfiction categories get a $12,500 prize and will be recognized Sept. 5 during Stanford's Saroyan Centennial celebrations. Jointly awarded by Stanford University Libraries and the William Saroyan Foundation, the Saroyan Prize aims to encourage new or emerging writers and honors Saroyan's literary legacy of originality, vitality and stylistic innovation."
