The finalists for the 2012 One Book – One Lincoln community reading program have been announced!
On Sunday, December 11, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., at Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 So. 14th Street, Lincoln, Neb., a panel of medical professionals from Lincoln will share their experience volunteering in medical mission projects abroad, including Africa, Haiti, and Mexico. Learn about the challenges and rewards of providing care in other cultures, and reflections on the ethics and practice of international aid.
The 2011 One Book – One Lincoln selection, Cutting for Stone, is set in large part in a mission hospital located in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. Missing Hospital, as it is known to locals, is staffed primarily by “ferengi” or foreigners: doctors and nurses from Britain and India and support staff from the neighboring region of Eritrea. Abraham Verghese’s novel is set against political unrest and the theme of belonging.
Program panelists include Dr. Yvonne Davenport, MD (Ob-Gyn) and 2011 One Book-One Lincoln selection committee member; Elizabeth Jacobs-Fitzgerald, RNC-OB, BSN; Karen McGivney-Liechti, CNM, MSN; and Jearlyn Schumacher, CNM
This event is free and open to the public. Because of the subject matter of this program, some material may not be suitable for young children.
