The Huffington Post and AARP held a nationwide memoir contest open to any American born before Dec. 31, 1964, with a story to tell. They received thousands and thousands of responses, which the judges, including the Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington, Huff/Post 50 editor at large Rita Wilson and AARP editorial director Myrna Blyth, narrowed down to 10 finalists, and finally just one grand prize winner. PRISONER IN THE KITCHEN (Simon & Schuster; March 29, 2016) is that outstanding story in full, available to the public for the first time.
