The 2016 Ready to Publish Award winner was Laura King, with her nursing home comedy Independence Day at Happy Meadows. It’s the Fourth of July and the women of Happy Meadows are longing for independence. When Holly receives a cry for help from her grandson, she rallies her comrades in arms, and the women plot a break out that goes hilariously awry.
