Book: A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner

Recommended by: Karen

I like it when I learn about a new period of history that I hadn't studied before when I read historical fiction.  Meissner takes the reader to Ellis Island circa 1911 to a medical ward treating immigrants with scarlet fever.  Nurse Clara Wood finds herself treating a patient that is suffering the same loss she is, the death of a loved one.  Meanwhile, in Manhattan 2011, widow Taryn Michaels discovers something precious that once was lost can be found. The stories are tied together with a beautiful scarf, covered in marigolds.  A fascinating look at life, love and a piece of history I had never thought about before.

Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence 2016 Winners
clear
The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction were established in 2012 to recognize the best fiction and nonfiction books for adult readers published in the U.S. the previous year.

Congratulations to Viet Thanh Nguyen and Sally Mann, the 2016 winners!

Viet Thanh Nguyen won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction for his novel The Sympathizer. A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, The Sympathizer is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties.

Sally Mann won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction for her book, Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs. Here photographer Mann chronicles her rich and eccentric family history, told through the exploration of old documents and images stored away in her attic.
