NEW YORK - Bill Clinton is coming to the National Book Awards.

The National Book Foundation announced Thursday that the former president, and bestselling author, will present an honorary prize to Scholastic Inc. CEO Richard Robinson. At the Nov. 15 awards ceremony in New York City, the foundation is giving Robinson its Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community. Another bold-faced name, Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, will introduce novelist Annie Proulx (Proo) as she receives a lifetime achievement medal.

On Nov. 15, the foundation also will announce prizes in the competitive categories of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and young people's literature.
