Author Q&A and contest: Escape From the Bedside, by Sharon Baltman

Sharon Baltman is a Toronto-based physician psychotherapist who has travelled across Canada, the U.S., Africa, and Israel. Her articles have appeared in the Globe and Mail, on-air in First Person Singular on the CBC, and in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, among others. This fall, Baltman published Escape From the Bedside, a memoir about her experiences becoming a doctor in the early days of feminism, and why she chose to pursue narrative medicine. She whips back the curtain on outrageous moral dilemmas, knocking doctors off their pedestals. Her journey continues through tragic personal losses and betrayals, but she perseveres through her sense of humour and unwavering optimism. Baltman recently spoke to Bookclub-in-a-Box about her new memoir, which author and playwright Marianne Ackerman calls “a lesson in living” and “a deliciously good tale.”
