Reading & Signing with Catherine Musemeche, MD
Introductory remarks by Spike Gillespie
As a pediatric surgeon, Catherine Musemeche operates on the smallest of human beings, manipulates organs the size of walnuts and uses sutures as thin as hairs to resolve matters of life or death.
Mixing personal narrative with history and surgical anatomy, Musemeche's book gives us an intimate and detailed view into the profession of saving small and precious lives. Join us for an evening with this moving story!
