Jon Kerstetter will sign

Jon Kerstetter will sign Crossings: A Doctor-Soldier's Story (Crown, $27.00). Trained as an emergency physician, Kerstetter volunteered in war-torn Rwanda, Kosovo, and Bosnia, and joined the Army National Guard. His three tours in the Iraq War involved everything from saving soldiers' lives to organizing the joint U.S.-Iraqi forensics team tasked with identifying the bodies of Saddam Hussein's sons. But war was only the start of Kerstetter's struggle. The stroke he suffered upon returning from Iraq led to serious cognitive and physical disabilities. His years-long recovery meant overcoming the perceived limits of his body and mind and re-imagining his own capacity for renewal and change. It led him not only to writing as a vocation but to a deeper understanding of how healing means accepting a new identity, and how that acceptance must be fought for with as much tenacity as any battlefield victory.
