Award-winning music journalist Carrie Borzillo chatted about her new
book "Nirvana: In the Words of the People Who Were There."
Regarding her inspiration to write this book, in commemoration of the
20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, she remarked, "The book
was originally released in 2000 by U.K. publisher Carlton Books as Eyewitness
Nirvana: The Day by Day Chronicle and was updated with more photos and
caption details in 2003 as a coffee-table size book as Nirvana: The
Day To Day Illustrated Journals. Since then, it's been released under
multiple titles, covers, and languages through licenses of different
publishers around the world. The 2014 version as Nirvana: In the Words
of the People Who Were There came out to commemorate the 20th anniversary
of Kurt Cobain's tragic suicide."
She continued, "I was inspired, however, to take this opportunity
to bring awareness to suicide by donating selling signed copies of my
book from my website, with a portion of the sales benefiting the American
Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The offer is still up. I didn't want
to just capitalize on this horrible anniversary; I wanted to do something
to give back and spread the word about suicide prevention."
