A BuzzFeed Books exclusive announcement of the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 Honorees of 2015… as baseball cards.

BuzzFeed Books is honored to announce the fantastic young writers in the National Book Foundation’s 10th annual 5 Under 35. While the selection committee usually consists of past winners and finalists of the National Book Awards, this year the honorees were chosen by previous 5 Under 35 Honorees in honor of the 10th anniversary.
