Irish Times Print with Rider version of "The Choice"
The Irish Times published a wonderful article from established author Arminta Wallace, discussing everything from Edie’s memoir “The Choice” and her decision to find joy to marching with Martin Luther King and building her family in America.
“Then I began to think – if I’m gonna live, I need to be for something. Not just against something, but for life. And for being a functional human being.” — Dr. Eger for Irish Times
Dr. Eger’s successful book discussions and signings have continued, this time in El Paso, TX. With a long history in El Paso from her time at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Edie was thrilled to return to some of her roots in Texas.
