Here are the contents of this month’s newsletter:
1) The Best Gift released November 16
The second book about our family’s journey in the then-small town of Kissimmee, Florida, and my 39th book overall, The Best Gift: Tales of a Small-Town Doctor Learning Life’s Greatest Lessons, was released a couple of weeks ago.
The Foreword to the book was written by Debbie Macomber, a New York Times bestselling author (many times over), who has sold 200 million books and had seven of them made into Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.
You can use this link to order a copy. I think you’ll agree that it will be a perfect Christmas present for family, friends, and those in your faith community.
2) Great Review of The Best Gift
Here’s the first professional review of the book from the “Write-Read-Life” folks:
More stories from Kissimmee make you fall more in love with this doctor and his family!
Walt Larimore brings more stories in his third installment of the tales from a small-town doctor learning life’s greatest lessons. Readers who enjoyed getting to learn more about Walt and his family during his previous book The Best Medicine will yearn to learn more about them. This book dives deeper into his time in private practice in Kissimmee and how he became a staple in the area. From rodeos to storms to death of close friends, this book offers some guidance and insight for every reader. Be sure to pull up a chair and a blanket because it’s going to be like you’re having a fireside chat with a long-lost friend.

4) “Art of Medicine” Lecture at the University of Alabama
I was honored and privileged to have been asked to present the “Art of Medicine” lecture (virtually) at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. One of my heroes in family medicine, Allan Blum, MD, invited and introduced me. I thought you might be interested in seeing a recording of the lecture.
