The 2011 Linn Area Reads selection, Irreplaceable, by Stephen Lovely, delves into the world of organ transplantation and the effect on
the people who are involved in the process. On Saturday, April 2, there will be a panel discussion held at the Marion Public Library with special guests from the Iowa Donor Network, as well as local businessman John Parhum, a transplant recipient. Lyle Muller from the Gazette will moderate.
The public is invited to attend this discussion and share their own stories. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn the importance of being an organ donor as well as the process to register.
There is a wonderful article in the Cedar Rapids Gazette on this event and the overall Linn Area Reads program today (April 1, 2011). We hope you will read it.
Please share your stories with us as well by posting your comments here.
