With just a few weeks to go until two of the six Carnegie Medal for Excellence shortlist titles are announced as winners, this week’s BTT features one of the three fiction offerings: Edwidge Danticat’s Claire of the Sea Light (Knopf). Reviewer Vanessa Bush writes that the book’s interlocking stories “flow beautifully one into another, all rendered in the luminous prose for which Danticat is known.”

Find out in person if Danticat, or any of your other favorite shortlist authors, will be taking home one of this year’s prizes at the Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction presentation on Saturday, June 28 at 8 p.m. at Caesar’s Palace.
