Apr 14, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Conference Room A Council Bluffs Public Library Description
Visit with author Jon Kerstetter, author of Crossings: a Doctor-Soldier’s Story.
In Iraq, as a combat physician and officer, Jon Kerstetter balanced two impossibly conflicting imperatives–to heal and to kill. When he suffered an injury and then a stroke after his third tour, he wound up back home in Iowa, no longer able to be either a doctor or a soldier. In his memoir, Kerstetter beautifully illuminates war and survival, the fragility of the human body, and the strength of will that lies within.
Author talk and book signing – this event is FREE and OPEN to the public.
