Discussion with Author & Gastroenterologist Michael Weisberg, M.D.
October 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join Dr. Michael Weisberg for a complimentary discussion as he reflects on his 28 years of practicing medicine in Plano and the journey of writing two medical novels.
The idea to write IN THE END came from a routine medical procedure. Before Dr. Weisberg puts patients to sleep for their colonoscopies, he asks them if they have any questions. Many comically reply, ” Doc, what’s the meaning of life?” Dr. Weisberg always replies that their question can’t be answered because there is no ONE meaning to life , but instead the question should be, what gives meaning to their individual life?
Review of novel, IN THE END:
Against a backdrop of an impending catastrophe, five individuals of varying backgrounds, faiths, ethnicities and financial means come together during a complex and difficult medical procedure. All five have experienced setback, tragedy, and accomplishment during their lives. All are challenged with the meanings of their lives. Is religion the answer? Is there an afterlife? Why are we even here?
Transcending faith and human frailty, IN THE END offers a message of hope and unification in an era of despair and divisiveness.
