Wrapping up 2010

Season’s Greetings from the Sacks office!

We hope your holidays are full of peaceful moments, firelight (see Dr. Sacks’s piece about his love of fire), and, of course, music (see his tribute to conductor David Randolph).

Some highlights of our year:

The Mind’s Eye has now been published in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and the Netherlands.  More translations will be available in early 2011.  In North America, the book is also available in large-type, audio, and e-book formats.

–A film based on “The Last Hippie” from An Anthropologist on Mars. “The Music Never Stopped,” directed by Jim Kohlberg, has been selected to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film features the music of the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

–A ballet based on Awakenings!  By Aletta Collins and Tobias Picker, performed by the Rambert Dance Company.

–An artists’ edition of Rota, excerpted from The Island of the Colorblind, featuring photographs by Abelardo Morell and designed by Ted Muehling for the Museum of Modern Art Library Council.

To one and all, thank you for your support and friendship in 2010, and our best wishes to you for 2011.

Happy Holidays
from Dr. Sacks, Kate, and Hailey
