EVENT:  William A. Reed, MD, will be In Conversation with Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books about Dr. Reed's new Memoir The Pulse of Hope: A Surgeon's Memoirs from Poverty to Prosperity.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Two-time Lifetime Legacy Award Recipient, Founder of the William A. and Mary J. Reed Cardiovascular Surgery Center and chair of the Department of Cardiovascular Diseases at the University of Kansas Hospital, William A. Reed, MD, has seen it all. “I remember the public hysteria surrounding polio which was worse in some ways to the fears today over EVD,” Dr. Reed said, “but whether polio, heart disease or a heart transplant people must have hope.”

ABOUT THE BOOK:   Dr. Reed's New Memoir is titled The Pulse of Hope.  Dr. Reed has established himself as a pioneer in heart transplantation, a nationally renowned horseman, a poet, philosopher and philanthropist who has endowed charitable causes and scholarships, universities, churches and medical institutions. Born into a childhood of poverty, hunger, and deprivation in 1927, his remarkable memoir takes you from his humble beginnings to a life of service to others. What he has to say about faith, healing, passion, and purpose makes the piece a required reading for a new millennium.

Al Michaels will appear for You Can't Make This Up: Miracles, Memories, and the Perfect Marriage of Sports and Television

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Al Michaels, the play-by-play voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football, will celebrate the publication of his New Memoir You Can't Make This Up: Miracles, Memories, and the Perfect Marriage of Sports and Television.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Al Michaels primetime network television career includes twenty years as the play-by-play voice of Monday Night Football. He won his first Sportscaster of the Year award in 1980, became the second sportscaster in history to receive a News Emmy nomination for his coverage of the San Francisco earthquake during the 1989 World Series, and was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the 2011 Sports Emmys. Michaels has covered eight Olympics, and is currently the play-by-play voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football, TV's highest-rated show. He lives in Los Angeles.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  One of America's most respected sportscasters--and the play-by-play voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football--gives us a behind-the-curtain look at some of the most thrilling games and fascinating figures in modern sports. No sportscaster has covered more major sporting events than Al Michaels. During the course of his forty-plus-year career, he has logged more hours on live primetime network television than anyone in history, having covered all four major sports championships--the Super Bowl, the World Series, the NBA finals, and the Stanley Cup final--as well as the Olympic Games, the Triple Crown, and many more. He has witnessed firsthand some of the most memorable events in sports, and in this highly personal and entertaining account, he brings them all vividly to life.

Michaels's stories cover unforgettable chapters over the past half century--from the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics' "Miracle on Ice" to the earthquake that rocked the 1989 World Series to the drama of what many consider the most exciting Super Bowl ever--Super Bowl XLIII between the Steelers and the Cardinals. Some of the biggest personalities on and off the field are here--Pete Rose, John Wooden, Brett Favre, Tommy Lasorda, O. J. Simpson, John Madden, Cris Collinsworth, Roone Arledge, Bill Parcells, Tiger Woods, Doc Rivers, Dennis Miller, and many, many more. Complementing access with insight, Michaels adds to the stories you thought you knew: Michael Jordan's eyesight; Howard Cosell's prickly, bombastic personality; even Peyton and Eli Manning's sibling rivalry. From start to finish, Al Michaels gives us an up-close portrait of an industry that is--today more than ever--a vital part of our national culture.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Wheat Belly Total Health answers the question, “What's next in the battle against wheat?”  In his follow-up to the mega bestseller, Wheat Belly, Dr. Davis helps his readers take command over their life and health in the aftermath of wheat.  There are many strategies that will help heal the damage caused by years of a wheat-filled diet.  And many of these lessons have been learned in the years since the original Wheat Belly was released, lessons played out on the broad public stage of over one million readers, all participating in this grand adventure.  Reordering your life after wheat is about learning how to regain full metabolic, gastrointestinal, thyroid, cardiovascular, hormonal, sleep, neurological, bone, and joint health.  Understanding the strategies and putting them to use can take health several steps higher, even if the reader has already had a major health success without wheat.  In addition to achieving better health in many different areas, life performance also improves in virtually all settings.  In the life after wheat, you’ll feel unrestrained, unimpaired, and unstoppable!
