By now you’ve all probably seen the NBA 2014 winners list. On the National Book Foundation’s website there are interviews with winners and some clips from the awards ceremony. I thought I’d round up additional interviews and reviews from other venues.

Redeployment by Phil Klay, the winner in the fiction category, was reviewed by NPR in March 2014. Morning Edition also aired an interview with Klay in March.  And Terry Gross interviewed Klay for Fresh Air after he won the award. You can listen to the Fresh Air interview here. Here are additional interviews with Klay:

Evan Osnos‘s Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth, and Faith in the New China was the winner in the nonfiction category. Back in April, C-SPAN aired an hour-long interview with Osnos. The Washington Post also printed an early review. PBS Newshour aired this post-NBA interview with Osnos.

Louise Glück won the prize for poetry for her work Faithful and Virtuous Night. The Poetry Foundation recently interviewed her regarding this work, but I couldn’t find any post-award interviews other than the one on NBF’s website.

Jacqueline Woodson won the prize for Young People’s Literature for her book Brown Girl Dreaming. A pre-award review from the New York Times can be found here. In September, Code Switch aired a profile of Woodson recorded for their program. Woodson’s book is a memoir in free verse. This week, Parade interviewed Woodson to discuss her win.

Finally, Ursula Le Guin received the award for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. She gave a great acceptance speech, which you can watch on her website. She has also linked to a transcript of it.
