Former Village Doctor Launches New Book

Dr. William O’Flaherty draws on thousands of patient encounters, both human and animal, for his new book Tomcats and House Calls: Memoir of a Country Doctor. O’Flaherty’s 24 stories about living and doctoring in rural Newfoundland and New Brunswick are filled with humour and poignancy – insight gained from 40+ years of facing life, death, and the truly unexpected.

A native of Newfoundland and Labrador, Dr. William O’Flaherty had worked as a physician in Blackville for many years, as well as in other parts of New Brunswick and Newfoundland.  He also has roots in Prince Edward Island, and currently lives near Moncton.

Dr. William O’Flaherty will be at Books Inn, around the square in Newcastle, on Saturday, May 26th, at 2:00PM to launch his new book. Dr. O’Flaherty will also be on hand to sign copies of the book, so drop by and pick up your copy!

You can also purchase the book online at Chapters.
