Best-Selling Author Dr. Sampson Davis Visits Campus

S Davis Visit

Dr. Sampson Davis autographs a copy of his best-selling book, “Living and Dying in Brick City: An E.R. Doctor Returns Home,” for a Berkeley College student.

Dr. Sampson Davis spoke to students and staff in Woodland Park, NJ, on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, about his book, “Living and Dying in Brick City: An E.R. Doctor Returns Home,” which was read by the Berkeley College Online Book Club. More than 270 students, faculty, staff, and alumni belong to the club. The event was streamed live to all campuses.

More than 85 people attended in Woodland Park, and approximately 200 attendees tuned in to the live event broadcast. “Students viewing remotely were still able to interact live with our author through chat,” said Matthew LaBrake, Berkeley College Library Director for Online Degree Programs. “This was an event highlight – online students working full time or separated geographically still had the opportunity to attend and participate live.”
