Literary Arts Group of the Sandwich Arts Alliance presents
Author Talk with Dr. Robert Reece, author of To Tell the Truth
Sandwich Public Library, 142 Main Street, Sandwich Village
The Sandwich Arts Alliance is proud to present Dr. Robert M. Reece reading from his novel, To Tell the Truth. He will discuss this poignant courtroom drama and field questions from the audience.
Dr. Reece has made a career combining medical research and advocacy in the field of child abuse. He is the former director of the Child Protection Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and has held similar positions at Boston City Hospital and Rainbow Babies’ and Children’s Hospital at Case Western Reserve University. He has edited major medical books addressing child abuse and published numerous articles and book chapters on the subject.
Dr. Reece garnered his considerable expertise and experience on the subject of abusive head trauma, sometimes called “Shaken Baby Syndrome,” in writing To Tell the Truth, which describes the fictional case of a young babysitter charged with the second-degree murder of a seven-month-old infant in her care. The story takes the reader from the infant’s sudden collapse through the harrowing hospital course and arrest and trial of the babysitter. The courtroom drama highlights medical testimony that is irresponsible, far from expert, and at times simply dishonest. Judicial decisions are surprising and border on the bizarre. A veteran child abuse pediatrician who has watched this trial from start to finish offers his prescription for changing the process of qualifying experts in medical trials.
To Tell The Truth can be ordered from your local bookstore or from Amazon.
Dr. Reece is available for readings and discussions of “To Tell The Truth” in bookstores, reading groups, professional groups, or civic engagements. Please go to the contact page to make arrangements.
