About the Author

David Kerns retired a decade ago from his career as a senior hospital executive and Stanford medical professor to devote himself full-time to writing. For the past six years he has been a columnist and feature writer for the Napa Valley Register. Born and educated in Chicago, his inspiration for Fortnight on Maxwell Street was his own two-week medical student rite of passage at the Chicago Maternity Center on the city’s West Side.

Fortnight on Maxwell Street is a page-turner filled with details about a unique experience during a unique time in America’s history that could have only been written by someone who was there, then. Kerns was, and his writing skill brings the reader into an intimate experiece of what it was like to be present in Chicago in 1968 when the city and much of the country was erupting in the wake of MLK’s assassination and babies were being born in tenement houses . The book provided much more than I expected it to in terms of it’s breadth, depth, and insights. I highly recommend it.
