Paul Holdengräber converses with doctor/poet Rafael Campo about ‘The Arts of Healing’ at TCMC
From a press release:
“The Arts of Healing” will be presented through a conversation with the New York Public Library’s Paul Holdengräber and poet and author Rafael Campo, M.D., at The Commonwealth Medical College on Thursday, Oct. 23. The event, which is a collaborative program of the University of Scranton’s Schemel Forum and TCMC, will take place from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. in TCMC’s auditorium (525 Pine St., Scranton).
A book signing and reception will take place immediately following the discussion. Copies of Dr. Campo’s most recent book, “Alternative Medicine,” will be available for sale at the event.
The community is also invited to hear Campo read some of his poetry at 4 p.m. in room 2001 at TCMC. Campo’s poem called “Iatrogenic” from “Alternative Medicine” was posted on the Duke University Press blog last year and is reposted below:
Holdengräber, director of public programs at the New York Public Library, founded and directs the library’s event series “LIVE from the NYPL.” He has curated more than 150 programs and was awarded the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres.

Campo, a practicing physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, is the author of “The Healing Art: A Doctor’s Black Bag of Poetry.” His interests include employing literature and other humanities in medical treatment and education.
