Author Discussion with Michael Weisberg, M.D.
June 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A complimentary book discussion by Dallas based Author & Gastroenterologist Michael Weisberg, M.D.
We’ll meet at The Inner Geek (formerly Empire Books & News) at 30 Pullman Square on Friday, June 14th at 1 pm.
Dr. Weisberg was born and raised in Huntington. He graduated from Vanderbilt University Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature. He earned his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and completed a fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He has been a practicing gastroenterologist in north Texas since 1991.
Here’s a brief description of his newly released novel, In The End: “…a thriller that opens along the lines of Robin Cook; but with more social and psychological issues, which are explored in greater, more satisfying detail. Its progression from a seemingly singular experience to humanity’s greatest catastrophe creates a fine cross-genre experience between medical novel, thriller, and sci-fi that keeps readers on their toes..”— D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
Gabriel, Rachel, Lester, Adonis and Charlotte; fictional characters whose lives mirror modern day challenges. Who will defy the odds? What will happen to bring them together?
Novelist and Gastroenterologist Michael Weisberg, M.D. crafted the idea for In The End from a routine procedure. Before putting patients to sleep for their colonoscopies, he asks them if they have any questions. Many comically reply, \”Doc, what\’s the meaning of life?\” He always replies that this question cannot be answered because there is no one meaning to life, but instead the question should be, what gives meaning to your individual life?
