Laura Bush Book Club: A Conversation with Author Michele Harper

November 18, 2020

Event time and further details to be announced.  Register to watch online and to receive ticket announcements if this event is held in front of a live audience. 

Dr. Michele Harper, author of the acclaimed – and timely – new memoir, The Beauty in Breaking, joins us for what is sure to be a powerful conversation about race and equity. Harper, an emergency room physician who grew up in a complicated family, explores how a life of service to others taught her how to heal herself.  Harper tells her story in case-study fashion, with each chapter devoted to a patient she treated in the ER. Each patient’s story leads to a better understanding of herself and to the inequities in our country. The New York Times called The Beauty in Breaking, “riveting, heartbreaking, sometimes difficult, always inspiring.” The conversation will be moderated by WFAA-TV anchor Cynthia Izaguirre.
