2017 INDIES Winner
Bronze, True Crime (Adult Nonfiction)

In 1967, in the small town of Circleville, Ohio, a man walked into an old-fashioned drug store on a busy Saturday and laid a smoking package on the pharmacy counter. He had a bomb. Five people died that day. Joni Foster, who lost her father, weaves a story about the lives of the five families, and a history lesson on the struggles of women fifty years past.
