Day at a Time Wins WPCI Communication Contest

May 19, 2008

Indianapolis, Ind. - Mary Anne Barothy, author of Day at a Time: An Indiana Girl's Sentimental Journey to Doris Day's Hollywood and Beyond from Hawthorne Publishing, was awarded First Place for non-fiction books in the Woman's Press Club of Indiana 2008 Communications Contest. The judges' comments were: "The author has navigated that difficult journey between personal memoir and biography. The book is revealing and candid... an engaging, honest, slice of a star's life. A pleasure to read."

Day At A Time details the time Barothy spent working for Doris Day. Formerly a society reporter for The Indianapolis News, Barothy achieved a fervent wish when she became Doris Day's personal secretary from 1971-74 while Ms. Day was filming "The Doris Day Show" at CBS. A resident in the star's home, she was privy to a unique view of the life of and happenings surrounding Ms. Day. Sometimes controversial, this book offers never-before-seen photographs and stories of the Hollywood star.
