National Book Awards 2011 (LIVEBLOG)

Tonight, the National Book Awards 2011 are being announced by the National Book Foundation at an awards dinner at Cipriani - a handful of blocks from Occupy Wall Street, where apparently the police have tonight again seized all books again.

Anyway, the black tie event is hosted by John Lithgow, who had a book of his own out this year.

We're liveblogging the event, and discussing the nominated books as we go. Follow along, and join the conversation in the comments or by tweeting us @HuffPostBooks
