5 Days at Memorial

It was a difficult subject; life and death in a hospital after a disaster and chaotic decisions made that seemed adjacent to a war zone. It was frustrating to realize the lack of organization there. This made for a good discussion.

It was a nostalgic read for any baby boomer! It was compelling with memorable characters. I could not wait to get back to rural Minnesota to find out what came next!

It is a more complicated issue than what is presented in this book, but it will start a conversation about cultures in sub-sets of our population.
