  30. 30. Date of Origin National Book Award Established in 1950, the National Book Award is an American literary prize administered by the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization. Over the years the National Book Award expanded, changed it’s name to The American Book Awards (TABA) and at one time gave a total of 28 prizes in 16 different categories. Operating as TABA, Finalists were chosen by a panel of publishers, booksellers, distributors, librarians, authors, and critics. It was soon decided that with so many awards, the impact of the award was greatly diminished. In 1987, the Board reestablished the National Book Award with an emphasis that the Awards were given to writers by writers. From 1996 until 2012, independent panels of five writers chose the National Book Award winners in four categories: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Young People’s Literature. As of 2013, judging panels are no longer limited to writers, and now may include other experts in the field such as literary critics, librarians, and booksellers. One of the five Judges on each panel is selected as the panel chair.
