Back in October, we brought you a sneak peek of the finalists for the 2012 Books for a Better Life Awards, which support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In their 16th year, the awards have raised over 1.8 Million for the New York City-Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
We are so excited to announce that Enjoy Every Sandwich by Dr. Lee Lipsenthal, was named a winner in the Inspirational Memoir category! Enjoy Every Sandwich is one of BBL’s favorite inspirational books, and we’re thrilled to have it recognized as such.
