In this special National Book Awards video feature, GalleyCat prowled the red carpet asking the nation’s most critically acclaimed writers to comment on the country’s most popular book series. We expected a snooty series of reactions to the upcoming adaptation to Stephenie Meyer‘s “New Moon” and the Twilight Saga, but we found something else altogether.

Also check out our exclusive interview with NBA Fiction Winner Colum McCan and our video interview with NBA Nonfiction winner T. J. Stiles. This week the publishing world gathered for the National Book Awards, a combination of the Academy Awards ceremony, a fairytale ball, and a high school prom for writers.

Don’t worry about buying a tuxedo, because GalleyCat will be covering the event. Senior editor Ron Hogan will be twittering about the event and editor Jason Boog will handle the good old fashioned blogging duties.
