Welcome to WordsWorth Books

We are excited to welcome pediatric neurosurgeon Jay Wellons, M.D. for an author event and signing. Dr. Wellons's book, All That Moves Us is one of the New Yorker magazine's Best Books of 2022.

This event will take place at the Jackson T. Stephens Spine and Neuroscience Institute at UAMS. RSVP for this event HERE.

In All That Moves Us, Dr. Wellons pulls back the curtain to reveal the profoundly moving triumphs, haunting complications, and harrowing close calls that characterize the life of a pediatric neurosurgeon, bringing the high-stakes drama of the operating room to life with astonishing candor and honest compassion. Reflecting on lessons learned over twenty-five years and thousands of operations completed on some of the most vulnerable and precious among us, Wellons recounts in gripping detail the moments that have shaped him as a doctor, as a parent, and as the only hope for countless patients whose young lives are in his hands.
