And the winner is … Michael Pollan!

Thanks to all our faithful readers who shared their excitement at the nomination of “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth” for a Books for a Better Life Award.

The award ceremony was held Monday night in a swanky hotel in Times Square, and co-editor Heather Stephenson and I had a grand time mingling with authors and publishers and supporting a good cause (the event was a fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society).

I know it sounds like an Academy Award speech, but we were delighted to be nominated, and honored to lose to author Michael Pollan and his fabulous book, “In Defense of Food.” You can see a list of all the winners here.
