Madden Auditorium




Speaker: Dr. Gail Fyke, Assistant Professor of Nursing at Millikin University and author
Book: The Breakfast Lady, by Gail Fyke

Gail will share the story of her son’s serious illness while on a band trip to New York City and how the actions of a motel’s breakfast worker may have saved his life. Gail will also describe how comfort dogs and positive nursing attitudes were significant in his recovery.

Books Between Bites is sponsored monthly by the Friends of the Decatur Public Library. A speaker presents a book or topic of interest, and you do not have to read the book to come and enjoy the program. You can bring your lunch, and the coffee is always on.
