Hear about the inspiration for Juliet’s Nurse, the best-selling novel by Portland author Lois Leveen. Discover how she incorporated research in medical humanities, particularly the history of childbirth practices in late medieval Italy, into her fictional retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Whether you’re a healthcare practitioner, an aspiring writer, or an avid reader, the discussion will deepen your appreciation of how facts—including historical information on health, illness, and medical treatment—can be woven into creative writing.
