Book Signing Chronicles Local’s Victory Over Cancer

Dr. Robert T. Winn will host a book signing for his moving memoir, Night Reflections, on Sunday, April 23, at 1:30 p.m. at the Harris Arts Center, 212 South Wall Street. The event is free of charge and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“In Night Reflections, Robert Winn describes the roller coaster events following his wife’s diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. Dr. Winn’s story is remarkably open, unguarded and intimate – a personal journey of discovery, friendship, love and ultimately survival,” writes  Frederick Appelbaum MD in the Foreward of the book.

Nancy Winn will be better known to longtime Calhoun residents as Nancy Hobgood. Her fellow high school classmates invited Dr. Winn to Calhoun to honor Nancy and celebrate her survival.

Throughout his wife’s illness, Dr. Winn, “Winnie” to all who know him, kept family and friends updated on Nancy’s progress through a series of emails. A family friend kept these emails, bound them in booklet form, and found them so moving she suggested that Dr. Winn write a book so others could benefit from his family’s experiences. Having practiced medicine all his life, Dr. Winn never considered himself an author, but none the less, wrote Night Reflections.

Dr. Winn is the Medical Director for the Deer Valley Ski and Park City Ski resorts in Utah. He administrates the mountain clinics that care for thousands of guests from around the world each year. For over twenty years he also served as the Medical Director at the Old Faithful clinic in Yellowstone National Park. The Winns remain long-term residents of Park City, Utah, and are very active in community affairs.
