Maurice Benard's Memoir Wins Christopher Award
Not only was Maurice Benard's memoir, NOTHING GENERAL ABOUT IT: How Love (and Lithium) Saved Me On and Off General Hospital, an instant New York Times' bestseller and a winner of the Mental Health America Award, but it has now won the Christopher Award! The Christopher Awards were created in 1949 to celebrate writers, producers, directors, authors, and illustrators whose work "affirms the highest values of the human spirit" and reflects the Christopher motto, "It's better to light one candle than to curse the darkness." Congratulations, Maurice!
