So are you impressed when someone is listed as a Pulitzer-Prize winner?
Would that designation make you more likely to read a book, go to hear a speaker, or see a show?
FYI: 2007's Pulitzer for fiction went to Cormac McCarthy's "The Road." The 2007 award for drama was scored by "Rabbit Hole," which is part of the Indiana Repertory Theatre's 2008/2009 season.
