I’m astonished and appreciative that my book won the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award in the autobiography & memoir category. Here is the press release from IBPA:
(Manhattan Beach, CA - April 9, 2018) -- The Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) – www.ibpa-online.org – announced over the weekend the gold winners in the prestigious IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award™ program, now in its thirtieth year.
While They're Still Here: A Memoir
Author: Patricia Williams
Publisher: She Writes Press
Purchase: Amazon, B&N, IndieBound
An engaging caregiving tribute, poignantly unfolding the challenges and rewards of healing the past, forging a new dynamic of compassion with humor, grace and grumbling.
The publisher of my book accepted my award at the ceremony, and read these words on my behalf:
“This book about the ten years I cared for my parents has filled my heart in ways I never imagined. I am grateful to my parents for their ordinary yet extraordinary lives, and deeply honored by this lovely and meaningful acknowledgement of our story.”
