PASCO LECTURE SERIES – GEORGE LONGSTRETH, MD – POSTPONED

May 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

We are thrilled to invite Maine Author George Longstreth to Graves Library for a Pasco Lecture on Sunday, May 17 at 2:00 pm.  Dr. Longstreth will be here to talk about his latest work You Call Me Angelo : The Godfather ‘s Been Shot in the John Pullman MD series  (published 11/2019)  

Here’s a bit:

The Godfather’s been shot, and surgeon John Pullman is on call. John’s troubles begin as the Mafia threatens him, his family, his associates and friends. Enter Steve, the nurse with strange ideas, who kills patients testing his cancer theories, and Al Townes, Head Trauma Nurse, who can kill quickly with his hands, but doesn’t. Will the Godfather’s personality ever be the same again? How many will Sal, the sub-boss of the Mafia Family kill before the Godfather returns to his right mind? Can John and Al survive Sal’s wrath? All these threatening problems come together as the surprise ending will leave the reader with a troubled smile. (Amazon.com)

 

Born and raised in Fairfield, Connecticut, George B. Longstreth, MD earned his medical doctorate from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in 1965. Spending six years in New York City, first in Spanish Harlem, then in Hell’s Kitchen, he lived among many of the characters and events that he now uses in his novels. After a surgical stint in the US Navy, followed by ten years in rural northwest Connecticut, George and his wife Betsy enjoyed an active surgical practice in Fairfield during the 1980s and ’90s. This included on-call rotations to the Emergency Room at near-by Bridgeport Hospital, where an unhealthy sampling of the drug-world underbelly came for urgent care. Betsy and George now live in active retirement in Kennebunkport, Maine, where they are kept busy by family (including 19 grandchildren), friends, unusual characters and happenings, and a dog named Jane.

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.  Sales and signing of You Call Me Angelo will follow the talk.  Please give us a call at 967-2778 with questions about this event or to find out what else is going on at Graves Library.  Doors open at 1:30 pm
