author Dawn Raffel will discuss her latest book "The Strange Case of Dr. Couney" at Little City Books on the corner for First and Bloomfield streets.
The true story is about the enigmatic Dr. Martin Couney, who saved the lives of thousands of premature babies by placing them in incubators in World’s Fair side shows -- as well as shows in Coney Island and Atlantic City -- in the 1930s.
The book explores who Dr. Couney is, his life, the lives he saved, and the medical world at the turn of the 20th century.
The nonfiction tale is already winning rave reviews and was named on the New York Times New & Noteworthy list.
