Tickets for the talk, "Abraham Verghese: On Medicine and Literature," are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are available via a link at the website of the Menlo-Atherton Foundation for the Future.

Dr. Verghese is the author of the novel "Cutting for Stone," and two memoirs: "My Own Country," about his years as a physician dealing with AIDS in Tennessee, and "The Tennis Partner," about his deep and complex friendship with a medical resident intern in Texas. He will take "a few questions" after his talk and will stay to sign copies of his books, a foundation statement says.
The school is at 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.
