Dr. Benjamin Gilmer in Conversation with Wiley Cash (SEAHEC) with Pomegranate Books – Wilmington, NC

May 11, 2023 @ 6:30 pm UTC+1

Please join NYT-best selling author Wiley Cash who will be in Conversation with Dr. Benjamin Gilmer exploring his book, “The Other Dr. Gilmer.” This story has been featured in the NYT, The Washington Post, People Magazine, USA Today, CNN and was originally aired on NPR’s This American Life. Dr. Gilmer’s story is a true crime thriller focusing on two Drs. Gilmer whose lives intersect in a truly bizarre way. It is both a medical mystery about why one Dr. Gilmer killed his father and a quest for social justice as the other pursues to prove that Dr. Vince Gilmer shouldn’t be in prison for life. One of This American Life’s most popular episodes and soon to be featured on the screen, this conversation will invite you to explore why all of our brains are fallible, and why “healing” is a better alternative to prosecuting people suffering from mental illness.
This a a free event. Books will be on site and available for purchase from Pomegranate Books.
