Patricia Wood has written a first novel with a protagonist who has an IQ of 76. Lottery is the story of Perry, who finds himself in the unusual position of holding the winning ticket to the Washington State Lottery. In an instant, he becomes a millionaire twelve times over and his life is transformed, in both predictable and unexpected ways.

I first became aware of Pat because her ex-husband’s brother has Down syndrome. Currently, she’s a Ph.D. student at the University of Hawaii, focusing on education, disability, and diversity. Also, she’s a talented and generous writer with a wonderful blog about writing, Patricia Wood Aboard SV Orion.

Kristen at From here to there and back has a copy of Lottery to share, and if (like me) you want to read it, go here (but hurry, the drawing ends soon).
