Noted: this from the Washington Post:

Walter Mosley has been named winner of the 2020 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation. He is the first Black man to win the foundation’s $10,000 lifetime achievement award, which was first awarded in 1988. The author of more than 60 books, Mosley is best known for his mysteries featuring detective Easy Rawlins. Our reviewer called his most recent novel, “Trouble Is What I Do,” “an absorbing noir beauty of a tale” (review). “The Awkward Black Man,” a collection of 17 short stories by Mosley, will be released next week.
