Paula Paul’s “The Mind of a Deviant Woman.” An indentured servant in Virginia during the early 1900s, Carrie Buck, is institutionalized. Her sickness? She gives birth to a daughter out of wedlock. She, along with epileptics, prostitutes, criminals, and other “undesirables,” are considered deviant and must be sterilized according to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in the 1920’s. New York socialite Louisa Van Patten who is involved in the eugenics movement and the Supreme Court decision is writing a college dissertation on deviants, and Carrie is the primary source for her research. In this mesmerizing fictionalized account of Carrie’s life, her trial and the Supreme Court decision, the reader can understand the influence of Nazi Germany against its citizens. 2019 CIPA EVVY AWARD – Merit Award Historical Fiction
