Capturing an idea for writing a novel is unique to each author. For Gastroenterologist and Author Michael Weisberg, M.D., it began with a routine medical procedure. Before Dr. Weisberg starts the anesthesia process prior to a colonoscopy, he asks the patient if she or he has any questions. Over the past 28 years of practicing medicine in Plano, Dr. Weisberg noticed that a common response from patients was, 'what is the meaning to life?' This question became the basis for writing his recent novel, IN THE END.
Join Dr. Weisberg as he reflects on his years of practicing medicine as well as IN THE END. We'll gather at Barnes & Noble Kitchen, Legacy West at 7 pm. on Friday, October 11th. Enjoy a wide variety of beverages from sparkling water to craft beer. Peruse through their menu and consider a light appetizer or meal. The best part is you can drink and eat in the store while listening to a thought-provoking discussion.
Parking is free and you'll enjoy the music-infused wide sidewalks that line Windrose Avenue.
Here's what others are saying about Dr. Weisberg's new novel:
"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, 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.
This novel will keep you thinking for days after you finish it. And that is the mark of a memorable and worthy read."
