Gretchen Roedde starts her rounds with A DOCTOR’S QUEST

Dr. Gretchen Roedde began September with a bang: her book, A Doctor’s Quest: The Struggle for Mother-and-Child Health Around the Globe (Dundurn Press 2012), debuted on the Globe & Mail bestsellers list (print edition) a whole week before the book’s official publication date! And it’s on this happy note that Dr. Roedde prepares for her rounds of Ontario bookstores and fall literary festivals.

Dr. Roedde’s tour schedule, and the Globe & Mail bestsellers clipping, is available after the jump.
