Folk singer Lucas-Grimm releases new book “My Beautiful Leukemia”; Americana Festival hits Brown County July 4

Jan Lucas-Grimm, the wife of Indiana folk singer and actor Tim Grimm, is releasing her book “My Beautiful Leukemia” at Viewpoint Books in Columbus, Indiana on Thursday (July 1st) at 6:30pm. Lucas-Grimm, who possesses one of the sweetest singing voices this side of Emmylou Harris, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005, underwent chemotherapy for a year, then had a bone marrow transplant in 2006.

Jan’s battle with this disease is chronicled along with some of the artwork she created during her recovery. About the inspirational book, she wrote “… it’s a book I wish I had found when I was diagnosed and going through treatment.”
