Polly Morland will discuss her latest book, A Fortunate Woman.
Inspired by a battered paperback copy of A Fortunate Man, John Berger's classic account of a country doctor working in the Forest of Dean in the 1960's, Polly discovered a remarkable doctor who serves that valley community today, a woman whose own medical vocation was inspired by reading the very same book as a teenager. A Fortunate Woman is a compelling, thoughtful and insightful look at the life and work of a country
doctor. Funny, moving and not afraid of the dark.
