I was recently interviewed by a reporter from one of my favorite magazines (and it’s a biggie!). They’re doing a piece on the book. We also found out that BLOOD WORK is a Scientific American Book of the Month Pick, a History Book of the Month Pick, and a Book of the Month pick for March.
Add some amazing blurbs from Deborah Blum (The Poisoner’s Handbook), Abraham Verghese (Cutting for Stone), NYT’s science writer Carl Zimmer, David Laskin (The Children’s Blizzard), and Peter Mancall (Fatal Journey)…I’m more excited about the book release than I can tell you!
But, I need your help.
We’re setting up the book tour right now. Cities on the scheduleso far: NYC, DC, Baltimore, Chicago, Madison, Salt Lake City.
Do you live in one of these cities? I’d love it if you couldemailany suggestions you have for bookstores, book clubs, and other organizations who might be interested in having me come talk.
If you don’t live in one of these cities and have ideas on how to help me get there,email me also! The topic is very well suited for:
-Talks at hospitals (as Grand Rounds or Bioethics seminars) and universities. By way of calling card, I’m on the faculty at Vanderbilt and teach in our Center for Medicine, Health and Society.
-Groups interested in history, the history of science, or military history (The rise of blood transfusion is inextricably connected to battlefield medicine.)
If you want more regular updates about my travel schedule, interviews, and other press the book is getting, go ahead and sign up for the weekly BLOOD WORK email onthe BLOOD WORK website.
In the meantime, heartfelt thanks and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
