Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction: "Five Days at Memorial"

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Join us at Maze to discuss "Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital" by Sheri Fink. As the flood waters rose after Hurricane Katrina, patients, staff, and families who sheltered in New Orleans’ Memorial Hospital faced a crisis far worse than the storm itself. Without power, an evacuation plan, or strong leadership, caregiving became chaotic, and exhausted doctors and nurses found it difficult to make even the simplest decisions. Unfortunately, when it came to making the hardest decisions, some of them seem to have failed.

What's Cooking?

Sunday, October 12, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats! This month's selection is "Keepers" by Kathy Brennan & Caroline Campion, and our recipe choice is Smoky Turkey Chili. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch one month prior to the event.
