Book Signing: Martha Boone
Joe's Place is excited to host author Martha Boone. She will be signing copies of her book The Big Free. About the book: The “Big Free” is Charity Hospital and it’s 1982 in New Orleans, and Charity is a big medical free-for-all. Elizabeth is one of the first women in the toughest surgery department in America. With her pearls and her pink plaid socks, she doesn’t fit in …at first. Half the doctors who start the surgery program never finish. Nothing in her proper southern upbringing prepares Elizabeth for the violence, debauchery and intensity of inner city trauma surgery. The Big Free is filled with unforgettable characters living the best and the worst New Orleans has to offer. It is a coming of age story and is told as only a true medical insider can tell. You will laugh and cry and love the characters.
