Immortal Bird Postscript

Readings and Noteworthy Lists

Apologies for not posting anything these past two weeks. It has been a very busy time professionally.

Tomorrow Thursday April 26 I will be doing a reading from Immortal Bird at 6 pm in Book Passage at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. My previous reading at the Harvard bookstore in Cambridge on April 2 was well attended, including by several friends and supporters. One of these, the actor, director and author Alan Alda, greeted me by saying “Are you going to make us cry?” Another audience member asked me to compare my book to John Gunther’s Death be Not Proud, about which I will do a separate post.  It was a moving experience, like all my readings thus far, and I continue to be surprised and gratified by the range of people who attend, the sensitive and intelligent questions they ask and the personal experiences  they share.

Immortal Bird has just been named to the 2012 Disruptor Award Reading List of Noteworthy Books.  The list, which honors Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow, as Book of the Year, flows out of disruptive innovation theory.  “The Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards celebrates those whose ideas have broken the mold to create significant impact on the future of our world. Based on the studies of Harvard Business School professor Clayton M. Christensen and helmed by Tribeca’s Craig Hatkoff, the award recipients touch the world of business, technology, arts, entertainment and beyond.” Immortal Bird was honored for its impact on our thinking about health care.

    Dear Doron,
    I just finished ‘Immortal Bird’, and am still heartbroken over your loss. I have only one son and cherish every day I have with him. I just loved the way you described D-man and how proud you must have been being his dad. My neighbor and friend has a daughter who has had open heart surgery at 2 years old. She is now 9 and has 2 holes on 2 different valves. She gets weak and tired alot too, but is so vibrant. They know that she will need open heart surgery again soon, but are so terribly scared. I really want them to read this book but I don’t want to worry them any more than they already are. Every day she is growing and growing and the holes are tearing wider and wider. I can’t believe you had the strength to go through all of this. You are remarkable and so was “D-Man.” I am sure you will meet him on the other side again one day. Truly beautiful story!! I hope some day you will come to Ohio and share your story. Sincerely, Meredith Bruns
