An Evening With Martha Boone – Thursday, June 6

June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening with author and Urologist Martha Boone as we celebrate her newest novel, Mother Charity.

Martha’s story of her time working at Charity Hospital is immortalized in her novels. Mother Charity is the sequel to The Big Free and continues the gripping story of an intern in surgery and all the trials and tribulations that come with it, from devastating horror to ribald dark humor.

Entrance to the event is free however tickets are required.


This event will be held upstairs. If you have a service dog, please let us know ahead of time so we can put away our devious shop cat.

Martha B. Boone, M.D. was a surgery resident and urology resident at Tulane and trained at Charity Hospital in New Orleans from 1985-1991. She is one of the first one hundred women board certified in Urology in the United States. She retired from the practice of urology after 35 years to travel and write. She was challenged by her mentor, Dr. Norman McSwain to memorialize the great Charity Hospital in her novels. Mother Charity is her third book and the sequel to The Big Free. She is also the author of the nonfiction book, The Unfettered Urologist.

“The Unfettered Urologist” by Martha B. Boone M.D. dives into the surprising connection between excess body fat, particularly belly fat, and a decrease in male sexual health and performance. The science behind it? Elevated estrogen levels caused by extra weight, which Martha explains effectively, can lead to lower testosterone. This, in turn, impacts muscle tone and, most importantly for me, hinders sexual performance. That revelation was the wake-up call I needed to finally prioritize weight loss.

While the sex-related impact was my personal motivator, the book offers a wealth of valuable information beyond that specific topic. If you’re looking for a fresh perspective on sexual and overall health and a science-backed nudge in the right direction, “The Unfettered Urologist” is definitely worth a read.

As a Louisiana native, I loved reading about Elizabeth’s daily challenges while honing her surgical skills and relationships at Charity Hospital. The setting was accurate and immersive, the characters quirky and colorful, and it had me craving a big shrimp po-boy! Boone’s writing grabbed me from the first page, and I enjoyed the book immensely! I highly recommend. I was provided an early copy of this book, Mother Charity, by the publisher for review.


Brilliant storytelling and raucous humor. Author Dr. Boone’s take on Urology is an unexpected total reading experience. Masterful and uniquely written with insider information. A published work worthy of every woman and man.
