The Defiant Mind Longlisted for George Ryga Award

DefiantMind_FCThe Defiant Mind: Living Inside a Stroke by Ron Smith is longlisted for the 2017 George Ryga Award for Social Awareness.

The George Ryga Award has been presented since 2003 to a British Columbian author who has “achieved an outstanding degree of social awareness in a new book published in the preceding calendar year.”

In The Defiant Mind, Smith takes the reader on a breathtaking journey—from the carpet bombing of the brain to a renewed and purposeful life—providing insight and support to survivors, families, and medical professionals navigating the fear and bewilderment that accompanies a stroke.

The shortlist will appear in the Spring issue of BC BookWorld.
