Children’s Book on Dr. Fauci Set to be Released This June
A new children’s book by author Kate Messner titled,”Dr. Fauci: How a Boy from Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor”, is set to be released by Simon & Schuster on June 29th.
Dr. Fauci serves as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda and as the chief medical advisor to the president.
From the publisher:
“Before he was Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci was a curious boy in Brooklyn, delivering prescriptions from his father’s pharmacy on his blue Schwinn bicycle. His father and immigrant grandfather taught Anthony to ask questions, consider all the data, and never give up–and Anthony’s ability to stay curious and to communicate with people would serve him his entire life.
This engaging narrative, which draws from interviews the author did with Dr. Fauci himself, follows Anthony from his Brooklyn beginnings through medical school and his challenging role working with seven US presidents to tackle some of the biggest public health challenges of the past fifty years, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Extensive backmatter rounds out Dr. Fauci’s story with a timeline, recommended reading, a full spread of facts about vaccines and how they work, and Dr. Fauci’s own tips for future scientists. ”
The book is available for preorder here.
