Paying attention to the Pulitzers

April 8, 2008
There's always lots of hype about the Academy Awards and the Grammys, but doesn't anyone care about the Pulitzer Prizes which were announced yesterday?

Among this year's winners:

Fiction: "The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz

Drama: "August: Osage County" by Tracy Letts

History: "What Hath God Wrought" by Daniel Walker Howe

Biography: "Eden's Outcasts" by John Matteson

Poetry: "Time and Materials" by Robert Haas

Poetry: "Failure" by Philip Schultz

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.
