Dr. Gilliam to read at Saturday's Stories in the Forest | Events
By day, Dr. F. Roosevelt Gilliam is an electrophysiologist with St. Bernards Heart and Vascular (formerly Cardiology Associates).
But this Saturday, February 2, instead of reading ECGs this doctor will be reading from the works of a couple of other doctors. Namely, Dr. Seuss and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
He will serve as the reader for the Stories in the Forest program at 3 p.m. at The Mall at Turtle Creek.
Dr. Gilliam will read aloud Oh, The Things You Can Do That Are Good for You by Dr. Seuss and I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King, a children’s book illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
In the first book, Dr. Seuss’s famous Cat in the Hat explains to young readers different ways to stay healthy such as keeping clean and getting plenty of rest.
I Have a Dream includes excerpts of Dr. King’s famous speech given 50 years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. This volume was illustrated by Kadir Nelson who is an award-winning artist.
The event is free and open to parents and children of all ages.
The Stories in the Forest program is sponsored by the Women’s Advisory Council of the St. Bernards Development Foundation.
