"Stiff" by Mary Roach

  • Nov 1, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Member's house

For 2,000 years, cadavers -- some willingly, some unwittingly -- have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem.

    It was a pleasure to meet all of you, and I dug the discussion. Apologies again that I had to skedaddle early. Cheers.

    Great discussion of an albeit morbid, but relevant topic we will all face (assuming there is a God among us!) Thanks so much.

    Hello! Hello! I'm in the area. I was a late sign up. Is there an address? If not no worries. Thanks.

    So sorry to have to cancel last minute! I've already RSVP'd for next month, though. Looking forward to it - I LOVED that book!! Looking forward to meeting everyone then. Drink some wine for me!

    I had planned on attending, but I have two concerns (1) I've only finished half the book; (2) I don't know the location

    Sad to have to miss this, I have a work event. I don't know anyone who would even read this book so I was looking forward to having people to talk to about it.
