Watching the 87th Oscars was special for me this year. There were so many moments that made my heart sing.
The award I was most excited about? That’s an easy one, Best Actress Julianne Moore in Still Alice. Her performance was stunning and heartbreaking. The movie was very true to the book by Lisa Genova, which is one of the best books I have ever read. I have loved everything that Lisa has written. She is a very talented author who folds her extensive science background into rich, compelling, human stories. Still Alice was the first book I ever read by her, and Left Neglected was the one that had the most personal meaning for me. And now I am looking forward to Inside The O’Briens, which will be coming out this spring. As a bookseller, she is always my go to author when someone is looking for multi-layered stories. I have met Lisa a couple of times while vacationing on Cape Cod and she has always been warm, gracious, and down to earth.
