Event Details

Author Dr. Margaret Brisco will be at the library to discuss her latest book “The Way It Was: Memories of a Woman Doctor”. In her book, Margaret Brisco gives voice to her memories in her own warm and singular way. She remembers Newark, New Jersey, where she practiced, the people she served, and the turbulent riots of the sixties that changed the face of Newark. Dr. Brisco, one of the first women to be an intern and a resident at Newark's Martland Medical Center, eloquently captures the challenges of female doctors in the late fifties and the sixties, and how she sought equality within the medical profession and overcame prejudice.

 

Dr. Brisco practiced obstetrics and gynecology in northern New Jersey for 35 years and was a pioneer at at a time when few women became physicians and even fewer undertook specialties involving surgery. Since her retirement from medicine, she has devoted herself to writing.
