Dawn,
You're so welcome. Thanks for reading the blog. I was floored when I heard that "Ruined" won the Pulitzer Prize. I shouldn't have been surprised because when I read about it and wrote about it in December, I knew it was something unique and special -- and quite frightening. I've GOT to read Slavery by Another Name, but I don't think I'm quite ready for it yet.
Take care,
Alicia
