We will meet in the lobby of the library (doors are off Vine St, between 19th and 20th). I'll be holding a Meetup sign. Try to get there a few minutes early so we can all sit together :)
Mary Roach | Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal (A)
Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 7:30PM
1901 Vine Street, 19103
No tickets required. For Info:[masked]-4341.
With wit and unflagging curiosity, Mary Roach has explored the posthumous human body (Stiff), ectoplasm and the afterlife (Spook), sex (Bonk), and the scientific oddities of space travel (Packing for Mars). “One of those rare writers who can tackle the most obscure unpleasantness and distill the data into a hilarious and informative package,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle, Roach probes the creepy aspects of life we all wonder about but are usually too polite to mention. Her new book Gulp is an exploration of human digestion.
In conversation with Anna Dhody, Curator, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia's Mütter Museum.
