Hi,

My name is Millie and I’m a regular reader of penfieldbooks.com. I’d like to thank you for the excellent information I’ve found on penfieldbooks.com. It’s always a great pleasure to read your articles and I have subsequently become a loyal reader.

I live in Banffshire, Scotland where I try to increase the awareness about cholesterol and heart disease amongst my family and friends.

It occurred to me that you might be interested in including a guest article on penfieldbooks.com about a study from the American Heart Association that states heart disease is the world’s number one killer and cause more deaths than all forms of cancer combined.

For example, I could provide an article in the form of a little guide to help your readers learn more about the issue – hopefully, this would spark a discussion about the topic at hand.

Please take a minute to consider this proposal. Any support would be much appreciated.

With your help, we can educate the public about the dangers of heart disease and cholesterol, this hopefully can help someone avoid them.

Either way, thanks for reading and posting your excellent information on penfieldbooks.com.

I hope you have a good week.

Kind Regards, —Millie Bruce


Penfield Books Reply to Millie Bruce:

Millie, thank you so much for your letter. I think we will start a letters from Penfield fans. Our title “Healthy Recipes” are all from the National Coronary Prevention Trials having to do with heart disease and diet. Thirteen major Universities and medical facilities participated in the recipes and research. We first published a similar title about twenty years ago and have revised it as a small stocking stuffer $7.95. Know we are trying to educate the public about heart disease and diet. Americans are overweight, me included. By the way, I have Scottish ancestry from a great-grandmother immigrant!  —Joan Liffring-Zug Bourret

(We don’t have any way to get in touch with you as your e-mail (millie_bruce@fastmail.fm) bounced back. If you have another e-mail and would like to send us the article or the link, that would be great. Thanks, -Deb Schense, Editor)


Our big news is the exhibition, Like Mother, Like Son at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art with nature photographs by my son, David B.

The 8-1/2 x 11-inch book has 136 pages and over 130 images from my 60-year career as a photographer. A special chapter details my civil rights work in the 1960s.
