Famous Authors (almost famous?) Participate in Book Signing

I've had the opportunity to publish 3 books, several book chapters and hundreds of articles on a variety of topics. From time to time those who have purchased one of my books would ask me to
autograph it. This has always resulted in a special feeling of appreciation for those who value my work.

The publisher of my latest work (Visual Diagnosis and Care of the Patient with Special Needs) held an official author book signing event during the annual meeting of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development meeting in Fort Worth, TX.

My co-editors/authors and I spent an hour and a half hanging out by the publisher's booth signing books for more than 40 colleagues. Dr. Marc Taub, Dr. Mary Bartuccio and I want to thank all who had a part to play in the production of this text. The chapter authors, production team, publisher...  and certainly our readers ... all deserve accolades for the part they played in making this book possible.

Although I am not yet at the level of Stephen King as an author of renown, I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to produce a book on the very important topic of patients with special needs. I am also grateful that there are doctors out there that care for these patients.not only by using the latest knowledge and scientific tools available but by using large doses of compassion as well.
