Catherine Musemeche, MD Reading & Signing- Small: Life and Death on the Front Lines of Pediatric Surgery

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!

Catherine Musemeche, MD is a board-certified pediatric surgeon, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Her essay “Wake-Up Call” was included in the anthology Twelve Breaths a Minute, and excerpted on NPR's "Talk of the Nation". She lives in Austin, Texas.
