House Organ Summer Reading 2010 Issue Now Online


The annual Summer Reading issue of House Organ is now online, featuring the winners of this year’s House Organ Writing Contest.

The winner of the Fiction category is Mandy Haynes-Bailey of the Pediatric Echo Lab for her story “The Day I Threw the Rock,” a remembrance by a young girl with a great pitching arm who comes to the rescue of her friend Sara Rose.

The Nonfiction category winner is “What Everyone Dies Of,” by Ginger T. Manley of Psychiatry, a story about the deaths of two elderly relatives in England, and how she will never hear “Onward, Christian Soldiers” quite the same way again.

The Poetry winner is “Change of Plan,” by Peg McNabb of Network Computing Service, a look at what might keep an erstwhile globetrotter closer to home.

Employees who use Facebook or other social networking sites are encouraged to post a link to the issue to show as many of our friends as possible the talent of people at Vanderbilt, and also to become a friend of House Organ at http://tiny.cc/j0j87.
