The biggest day in the literary year has arrived: The announcing of 2008’s Pulitzer Winners. The Washington Post earned 6 awards this year, while hometown rag The New York Times earned just 2. Bob Dylan also earned a “Special Citation” for “his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.”

Full list of winners—including Junot Diaz, August: Osage County, and Robert Hass—available here.  

(Also, nearly every current member of the Pulitzer Prize Board is pictured above. However, PrezBo remains conspicuously absent. Maybe he was taking the picture?)
