Lisa Genova is the bestselling author of several fiction books that touch on neurological disorders.

She is the author of the New York Times Bestselling novels "Still Alice," "Left Neglected," "Inside the O'Briens," "Every Note Playe," and "Love Anthony."

"Still Alice" spent over 40 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It won the 2008 Bronte Prize and the 2011 Bexley Book of the Year, and it was nominated for the 2010 Indies Choice Debut Book of the Year by the American Booksellers Association. It was the #6 Top Book Group Favorite of 2009 by Reading Group Choices, a 2009 Barnes & Noble Discover Pick, a 2009 Indie Next pick, a 2009 Borders Book Club Pick, and a 2009 Target Book Club pick. There are over a million copies in print, and it has been translated into 25 languages. It was chosen as one of the thirty titles for World Book Night 2013.

"Still Alice" was adapted into a film starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish in 2014.

"Left Neglected," also a NYT bestseller, was the #1 Indie Next Pick for January 2011, the Borders “Book You’ll Love” for January 2011, and the #4 Indie Reading Group Pick for summer 2011. "Left Neglected" was chosen by the Richard and Judy bookclub in the UK.

Genova’s third NYT bestselling novel, "Love Anthony" was an October 2012 Indie Next pick and a People Magazine Great Read. USA Today calls it “beautifully written and poignant to the point of heartbreak.”

Genova travels worldwide, speaking about Alzheimer’s Disease, traumatic brain injury, and autism. She has appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, the TODAY Show, PBS Newshour, NPR, the Diane Rehm Show, CNN, Chronicle, Fox News, and Canada AM and was featured in the Emmy Award-winning documentary film, To Not Fade Away.

In 2015, Genova was named one of the U.S. Top 50 Influencers in Aging by Next Avenue. That same year she released her fourth novel, "Inside the O'Briens," which is about a family living with Huntington’s Disease.

Her TED Talk, "What You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's" has been viewed over four million times.

She received The Pell Center Prize for Story in the Public Square, for "distinguished storytelling that has enriched the public dialogue," The Sargent and Eunice Shriver Profiles in Dignity Award, The Global Genes RARE Champions of Hope Award, and The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology Media Award for "informing the public about Treatment and ongoing research in medical illness."

In 2016, she received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Bates College, The Alzheimer's Association's Rita Hayworth Award, and The Huntington’s Disease Society of America Community Awareness Award. She is co-Chairman of the Ric and Jean Edelman Alzheimer's XPRIZE, launching worldwide in 2019.

Genova's fifth novel, "Every Note Played," was published in 2018 and is about an accomplished concert pianist who is diagnosed with ALS.
