This Saturday make your way out to the Hudson Public Library, located at 8012 Library Rd. From 1pm – 3pm book enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get their books signed by numerous authors including two of Richter Publishing’s own!

Dr. Karen A. Kelly, “Take a Breath: A Transplant Journey”

Blank white book w/path

In this true story, Dr. Karen A. Kelly M.D. shares her husband’s journey through a life-saving lung transplant. Learning about his courageous battle can help any patient or caregiver understand the extensive responsibilities required for a successful organ transplant. As a pediatrician, Dr. Kelly found herself in a different role as caretaker not as provider. Her experience highlights the vital importance of taking care of oneself in order to adequately care for a sick loved one. She also stresses the importance of stopping: to rest, to take a deep breath, to laugh, and to rejuvenate. The Kelly’s story sheds light on the shocking realization that 120,000 people in the U. S. right now are waiting for an organ transplant and that twenty of those people will die every day waiting on the “list” for a stranger to decide to be a hero.

Karen Mertes, “Plaintiff 101: The Black Book of Inside Information Your Lawyer Will Want You to Know”

Blank white book w/path

Amazon Best Seller – This book is to help other personal injury survivors contemplating litigation, or already involved in litigation. You should be able to navigate these troubled waters ever so slightly easier because of our experience and advice. Karen and Michael are hopeful that plaintiffs’ attorneys will see the benefit of providing this book as a teaching tool to their clients so as a team you can win your case!
