Meet the Author event at War Memorial Building

By Staff | Jul 25, 2014

Dr. Fry-Revere, a Quaker, is the first Westerner ever to interview kidney sellers in the one country in the world that claims to have solved its kidney shortage. Rarely does an adventure story carry such social significance as in this groundbreaking work. Dr. Fry-Revere spent two months in Iran interviewing and filming her subjects without permission from the Iranian government. She shares her discoveries in this fascinating book: part diary living in a dangerous country, part ethnographic essay, and part tale of people working together to overcome death and financial ruin. The Kidney Sellers is a shocking, thought-provoking, true story.

Sigrid Fry-Revere is the ethics consultant for the Washington Regional Transplant Community’s Organ and Tissue Advisory Committee and project director of the Center for Ethical Solution’s SOS (Solving the Organ Shortage) project. She has written hundreds of articles for publications such as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics, The Journal of Clinical Ethics, and Pediatric Nursing. She is also the author of one book (The Accountability of Bioethics Committees and Consultants) and has edited another (Ethics & Answers in Home Health Care). Sigrid holds a Ph.D in philosophy and a law degree, both from Georgetown University.

The author will be at the War Memorial Building fro 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, July 26. Books are available at Amazon.com and other outlets. The event is hosted by Four Seasons Books and Mountain State Freethinkers.

All author royalties go to support the Center for Ethical Solutions SOS (Solving the Organ Shortage) Project.
