Pulitzer Prize winners at Detroit Lakes library
May is the month the Pulitzer Prize was established! Joseph Pulitzer, a Hungarian-born journalist, provided money in his will (of 1904) for the establishment of the contest for excellence in journalism.

The 2010 winner for fiction is the first book highlighted below, and the other two are finalists in fiction.
