West Kentucky Community & Technical College will host author Celeste Goodwin, whose grandparents lived in Paducah, to talk about her 2014 novel "A Boy Back from Heaven."
The book centers on her son Matthew, who in 2007 developed stenosis in the main artery to a kidney,s leading to undiagnosed high blood pressure following routine surgery. Following a near-death experience Matthew Goodwin shared his spiritual revelations with his parents. She will also discuss how many physicians, nurses, hospital support staff members and volunteers made a positive impact on his life.
Goodwin, founder of the National Pediatric Blood Pressure Awareness Foundation, will read excerpts from her book during a free one-hour presentation at 11 a.m. April 16 in Matheson Library. Goodwin then will answer questions from the audience and sign copies of her book.
