NEW YORK (AP) — Feminist and author Gloria Steinem and Hollywood producer Brian Glazer are among this year's winners of the Books for a Better Life Award.

The New York City-Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society presented the awards Monday night. The awards honor "self-improvement" authors and help raise money for programs and services helping people with MS.

Steinem was commended for her memoir "My Life On the Road" and Glazer for "A Curious Mind," co-authored with Charles Fishman. Glazer's credits range from the Oscar-winning "A Beautiful Mind" to "Splash" and "Apollo 13."

Others receiving awards included Ann Ogden Gaffney for "Cook for Your Life: Delicious, Nourishing Recipes for Before, During, and After Cancer Treatment," Sarah Hepola for "Blackout" and Megan Feldman Bettencourt for "Triumph of the Heart."
