Book Talk with Michelle Davis, Author of Finding Hope on Vegas
October 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Boulder Junction Public Library invites you to meet author, Michelle Davis, on Monday, October 8, 2018 from 11 am to 12 pm at the Boulder Junction Community Center, 5392 Park Street.
Michelle Davis chronicles how her seventeen-year-old son, Nathan, escaped near death after being stomped by a fifteen-hundred-pound bull named Vegas at the Gratiot County Fair in Alma, Michigan, on August 9, 2014.
As abruptly as the ride ended, Nathan’s health drastically changed as he found himself fighting for life in a small, rural hospital. Michelle takes readers on a rollercoaster ride as she recounts her family’s journey leading up to Nathan’s accident, the accident itself and the horrific battle of survival that ensued. This profound story will have readers on the edge of their seats as they discover how dedicated family and friends, along with determined medical personnel, witnessed miracle after miracle as Nathan clung to life.
Eighteen and three-fourths gallons of blood was what it took to save Nathan Davis in two and a half weeks’ time. In the midst of it all, the Davis family found an unexpected gift by an unsuspecting giver: hope on a bull named Vegas.
Author Michelle Davis lives in a small, rural Michigan community. She graduated from Central Michigan University where she received a bachelor’s degree in computer science. After working for almost eight years in the technology industry, she left to dedicate herself to her family where years later she found herself faced with the most difficult experience she had ever witnessed. A devout Catholic, Michelle believes God has a plan for everyone. She began to write about that experience in what she called her post-traumatic stress journal and feels blessed that it has been transformed into a book to allow her to share her family’s incredible story of hope.
Davis will have copies of the book for sale and signing after the talk. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For questions, call the library at 715-385-2050. For more information about the book, visit findinghopeonvegas.com.
