John Heminway – In Full Flight

Monday, February 26, 7pm
St. Louis County Library HQ

John Heminway, In Full Flight, Left Bank BooksPresented by the Medical Arts Series

Dr. Anne Spoerry treated hundreds of thousands of people across rural Kenya over the span of fifty years. A member of the renowned Flying Doctors Service, the French-born Spoerry earned herself the cherished nickname, "Mama Daktari"—"Mother Doctor.”. Now, in the first comprehensive account of her life, Dr. Spoerry's revered selflessness gives way to a past marked by rebellion, submission, and personal decisions that earned her another nickname—this one sinister—working as a "doctor" in a Nazi concentration camp. In Full Flight explores the question of whether it is possible to rewrite one's troubled past simply by doing good in the present.

This event is presented by the St. Louis County Library. For more information, please call 314-994-3300.
