About the speaker

John Faherty is the Executive Director of the Mercantile Library, and was journalist for the 25 years prior. He’s married to Laura Trujillo and they have 4 kids. He received a pancreas transplant on November 1, 2013. He learned there is no “e” at the end of pancreas a few weeks after that. Then he nearly died with that knowledge, and then he didn’t. Those experiences changed him in ways that he did not anticipate.
