So honored!

Dear Ones —

THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS has been nominated for a terrific prize in the UK called The Wellcome Prize — for achievement in writing on a medical subject.

This is such a delight, to have been short-listed. SOAT is the only novel on the list, alongside work by such eminent scientific authors as Andrew Solomom and Oliver Sachs.

Alma would be so pleased, to be recognized in the world of science!
