Join us this Sunday at 6p for a discussion of the first 10 "tales of the afterlife" (most vignettes are 2 page long) -- out of SUM: FORTY TALES FROM THE AFTERLIVES, by neuro-scientist David Eagleman (2009).
See first 2 paragraphs of first tale below.
You can go online and download the whole book at http://www.ulozto.net/xof1Gaz/eagleman-david-sum-forty-tales-from-the-afterlives-pdf (select the limited download. It's safe!) Just remember we only discuss the first 10 tales -- up to/including "Spirals".
It's OK if you show up unprepared. I will have a few xerox copies for us. We can even read a few together.
For more info, contact Guy Henoumont at[masked] or at [masked]
