Acclaimed author Sara Paretsky was the featured speaker at the reception honoring the winners of the 2017 Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction in Chicago last June. Her speech, reprinted in Booklist’s May issue, includes a few factual updates but appears largely as delivered, fiercely and powerfully. Paretsky received a standing ovation.
