Thanks for the many kind wishes shared with me after the Library of Virginia named The Organ Thieves winner of its 2021 Literary Award for Nonfiction. “This powerful book shines light on the unforeseen links between racial inequality and the race to perform the first human-to-human heart transplant in Virginia during the 1960s.”
The virtual ceremony was hosted Oct. 16 by best-selling author and award-winning filmmaker Adriana Trigiani.
I can’t thank each you enough – some for aiding my research, some for ideas in the writing process , and ALL for being readers. For without readers, books (and authors) are very lonely indeed!
