Join us for the culminating event for the 2011 One Book One Marin celebrating Abraham Verghese’s Cutting For Stone. The term “sweeping epic” perfectly describes this amazing novel. The narrative covers five decades, four continents, civil war, politics, betrayal, redemption and a touching love story. The unbreakable bond of twin brothers as they are divided and face worlds of conflict, allows the reader a window to the myriad meanings of family. At its heart is author Verghese’s reverence for the practice of medicine and his compassionate understanding of the human condition. Readers will be richly rewarded by this unforgettable story by an immensely talented Bay Area physician and Professor of Medicine at Stanford University.

Michael Krasny is the host of KQED's Forum and the author of Spiritual Envy.
