Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Dr. James Maskalyk’s experience as part of Médecins Sans Frontières led him to write his bestselling memoir, Six Months in Sudan, and helped readers feel the inescapable heat and the heartbreak of life in Sudan. It also established his reputation as a thoughtful and sensitive writer. His new memoir is Life on the Ground Floor, a reflection on his emergency room experiences. Splitting his time between a trauma centre in Toronto’s inner city and a hospital in Ethiopia, while also caring for his grandfather in northern Alberta, Maskalyk finds time to meditate on health and sickness, on striving to give a stranger’s body another minute or another day or another year, and on knowing when it’s time to let go.
