On May 16 2009, Rachel Madorsky, internationally published author, was honored at the Illinois Woman's Press Association prestigious Awards Luncheon held at the Union League Club in Chicago.
Madorsky received the 2009 Mate E. Palmer Communications Contest Award for her nonfiction book Symphony of Your Karma: Healing Destiny of Soul.
The award encompasses career success and service to both the community and to the Illinois Woman's Press Association / National Federation of Press Women.
Madorsky’s book has been well received by her audience and professionals in related fields. One of the independent judges wrote of Symphony, “…Very nicely written with ample examples and illustrations. The book is a fine introduction to the subject.” Bernie Siegel, M.D., endorses Madorsky’s work by saying, “Every life is a symphony, but you have to conduct the orchestra and create harmony in your life. Rachel's book will help you to find your song, play it, and live it.” And the Midwest Book Review proclaims that Rachel’s book “…has a positive message, making Symphony of Your Karma worth the time to read for those looking to get deeper in touch with spirituality.”
