The Pittsfield Public Library is hosting the book launch for “Therese’s Dream – Maine to Darfur: A Doctor’s Story” by Dr. David Austin on Thursday, October 27 at 6:00.
Dr. Austin was raised in Pittsfield, Maine where he is a life long Unitarian Universalist. He began his medical practice in the 1980s and in the early 2000s began making missionary trips. He joined Doctors Without Borders/ Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in 2008. His first book, “Therese’s Dream – Maine to Darfur: A Doctor’s Story”, chronicles his time with Doctors Without Borders and illustrates the common humanity of peoples around the world. Dr. Austin will read excerpts from his book, offer a brief question and answer period followed by an opportunity for book signing.
