We just love to celebrate new authors – and especially Richmond authors! We’re excited to hear that one of Richmond’s newest authors has written a great beach read – or just a leisurely read at home. And best of all? It supports the vital research related to diabetes research.
Richmonder Kathleen Reid, a long-time JDRF supporter, has written her first romantic comedy. Boston Found is an entertaining beach read that also sends a positive message of hope about type 1 diabetes.
According to the JDRF website about the book:
It’s an engaging and compelling story that will resonate with all those familiar with the myriad of ways type 1 diabetes can touch and change lives.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
Inspired by her good friend, Eva Clarke, a community leader for type 1 diabetes, Kathleen will donate a portion of the book’s proceeds to JDRF. On the JDRF website, Kathleen says she is “continually awed by the grace“ with which Eva manages her disease and its effect on her life.
Eva started the “DRIVE OUT DIABETES” license plate program available to Virginia motorists and initiated the annual JDRF Gala held at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. Each of these efforts promotes finding a cure for the disease as well as funding vital research.
