Happy new year! We're going to kick off 2014 with a discussion of Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink.
A quick tease of the book:
Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink’s landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice
In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amid chaos.
Hopefully you can all make it. And some of you lurkers out there, make it your New Years Resolution to meet some other nonfiction fans in January. Come on out and join us!
