Okay. I can’t figure out the slang term for “boosting” or whatever the freaking word is, but I want to bring a friend’s (well, TWO friends–Neeta Jain and Dagan Coppock) book to your attention! The name of the book is Body Language, and it contains poems about the medical training experience. I met both Neeta and Dagan at a writing conference a few years ago, and they are just superfantastic poets _and_ doctors. Now they have an anthology out.
Of course, a book release is not without its PR campaign. One of Neeta’s interviews is on YouTube. There’s an interview on KRON-TV somewhere (once it’s up, I’ll post it) And the book has been highlighted on NPR (click on Thursday and Friday to read the poems).
Check the book out.
