Unless you’re a member of the Academy that other award show may be out of your hands, but the Literary Fauxscars are up to you! Check back often for new features on our nominees and Literary Traveler staff predictions. Then, come February 24th, when the stars are don their best dresses and tuxes, join us (in sweats, we don’t judge!) to see who takes home a shiny new “Fauxscar”.
