Sunday, October 21
EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes Julie Kaderabek, RN and Laura Wolfe, RN to discuss their book Surgery Day, on Sunday, October 21st at 3pm.
"Imagine receiving the unexpected news that your child needs to have surgery! You research how to best prepare your whole family for what is to come. After searching the internet and the library, you realize there isn’t a book that is both kid- and parent-friendly to help everyone know what to expect on the day of surgery.
As mothers and nurses, we have experienced surgery on both ends. When our own children needed surgery, we felt unprepared and unknowledgeable as to what the surgery day would be like. Now working as perioperative nurses, we take care of families in the same situation–most arrive as we did, uncertain and underprepared. We wanted to change that and that’s why we wrote 'Surgery Day'."
