Novel-T is in Miami, Florida for the weekend for the Miami Book Fair, one of our favorite events of the year. For a couple kids from New York, it's hard to beat the chance to shoot down to the sunny climes of South Florida to talk books for a few days.
It's also a good chance for us to talk about one of the newest additions to the Novel-T league, Zora Neale Hurston. Hurston was a great student of the culture and history of Florida, both of which she brought to bear in her most widely-read novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. In fact, she once wrote that, “I’ve got the map of Florida on my tongue.”

True, it's only May, but it's never too early to start thinking about (and collecting ballot nominations for) the Novel-T ROY.
No, this isn't another Roy Campanella post. And we're not referring to Roy Hobbs from The Natural--I'm sure we'll get to that soon enough.
We're talking about the Novel-T Rookie of the Year.
This year it's a race between Blake, Eggers, Emerson, and Hurston. Vote for your favorite here.
The Novel-T Rookie of the Year will win a great big prize of some sort, which will likely be shared among the fans. Either one of those tremendous bags of popcorn that you see sometimes vendors dig into at minor league ballparks, or something else.
If you have ideas on what the prize should be, let's hear 'em!
