Surgeon and Thriller Writer Pearson's Television Interview to Air Sunday Morning

A. Scott Pearson, M.D., associate professor of Surgery, will appear on "A Word on Words" with John Seigenthaler at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, July 17. The program airs on WNPT-TV Channel 8, Nashville Public Television.

Pearson will discuss "Public Anatomy," his second medical thriller featuring Memphis surgeon Eli Branch, who must unravel a string of mysterious deaths set in motion after a colleague performs robotic surgery.

“A tantalizing premise combined with tight suspense makes this one delicious tale. You’ll enjoy the ride,” writes Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of "The Emperor’s Tomb."
