Lisa Genova

Greg Mentzer

Lisa Genova graduated valedictorian, summa cum laude from Bates College with a degree in biopsychology and has a doctorate in neuroscience from Harvard University. 

Acclaimed as the Oliver Sacks of fiction and the Michael Crichton of brain science, Genova has captured a special place in contemporary fiction, writing stories that are equally inspired by neuroscience and the human spirit. She is the New York Times best-selling author of the novels "Still Alice," "Left Neglected," "Love Anthony," "Inside the O'Briens" and "Every Note Played." 

Her first work of nonfiction, "Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting," published March 2021, was an instant New York Times best-seller.
