The Daphnes Announce Shortlist For The Best Books Of 1963

Posted at 10:28PM Sunday 23 Feb 2014

The first-ever Daphne awards shortlist was announced Friday evening in Chicago, setting the stage to declare the best books of 1963.

This happens: Famously, "Citizen Kane," declared by film historians the greatest film ever made, didn't get the Oscar — the forgotten drama "How Green Was My Valley" did.
