Dr. Randy Hines II officially launched his medical thriller, “Appendicitis,” in a book-signing event during Black Writers’ Weekend on Thursday, June 6. Hines is a board-certified family medicine physician with a private practice just outside of Atlanta.
Hines’ book, “Appendicitis” features the story of Daniel James, a 28-year-old engineer and recent resident of Louisville, Kentucky, who has become the proud new husband of an emergency medicine physician. There is nothing on earth he loves more than his beautiful wife.
On one cold winter morning, Daniel goes to the hospital to get himself checked out after experiencing mild stomach pain. What happens after he enters the hospital is nothing short of extraordinary. The man who enters the hospital will not be the same man who makes it out if he makes it out.
This book-signing began with a red carpet reception featuring DJ K-Threat, complimentary cocktails courtesy of Bomade Organic Lemonade Vodka and small bites courtesy of Sandtown Pub. Following the red carpet reception, Hines was interviewed by Tamika Newhouse, founder of The Black Writer’s Weekend, for a small session of “Conversation with the Author.”
After a short autograph/session, Newhouse also hosted a “Ask the Doctors” panel that enabled attendees to ask the team of doctors anything that was on their mind. The team of doctors consisted of five distinguished medical professionals, who provided insightful answers to attendees questions about everyday medical situations as well as debunking popular myths found on the Web.
The doctors included:
- Dr. Randy Hines II (Family Medicine Physician/Author of Appendicitis),
- Dr. Theodore Morgan II (Psychiatrist),
- Dr. Rachel Adams (OB/GYN),
- Dr. Antonio Williams (Family Medicine Physician), and
- Dr. Ayesha Lovick (General Surgery Physician)
The evening concluded with Hines II signing books and taking pictures with friends and readers alike as guest celebrated and turned up to the soulful sounds of DJ K-Threat.
