Shandi Mitchell, “the Waiting Hours” Book Launch, May 6th

When you spend your life saving others…who will be there to save you? When tragedy erupts on a stifling summer night, three ordinary people, with the extraordinary jobs of rescuing strangers, are connected to one another in ways both explicit and invisible. Each is deeply devoted to what they do, but they are all beginning to crack under the immense pressures of their work. More info here
