Author, and senior projects reporter for The Post and Courier, Tony Bartelme has been a finalist for three Pulitzer Prizes. Enjoy a delicious lunch while he talks about his new book, A Surgeon in the Village, which tells the uplifting true story of a neurosurgeon's quest to teach brain surgery in one of the poorest and most remote places on earth. In vivid detail, the book also exposes one of the world's most neglected but serious public health problems – one that kills more people than malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS combined. It's a story about the power of teaching and love. "Lyrical, inspirational and altogether rewarding." – Tom Brokaw, author of "The Greatest Generation."
