Dr. Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and author, will be in Meridian Thursday signing copies of his latest book, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future.
Carson is the first surgeon to successfully separate twins conjoined at the head.
He wrote a book about that experience, which was made into a 2009 movie, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., in the title role.
Carson has also recently been mentioned as a possible Republican presidential candidate. There is an online petition at www.runbenrun.org to convince Carson to run for President of the United States in 2016.
Carson's book signing will be at LifeWay Christian Store at Meridian Crossroads June 5 from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
