Announcing a new Meetup for Salt City Skeptics!

What: "Spook" book discussion, with special guest Mary Roach

When: May 27,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Meetup Description: Our next Salt City Skeptics book club book is Spook by Mary Roach.

If you haven't yet picked it up, get thee to a bookstore and grab it now, because we have an awesome opportunity: The author will be joining us (by phone) for our book discussion on May 27th.

Mary Roach is the author of three fantastic, entertaining and offbeat books about scientific inquiry into some unexpected topics: Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, about... well, about human cadavers (it's far more entertaining that you'd think!); Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, which addresses the scientific evidence of an afterlife (or lack thereof) and supposed supernatural phenomena; and her most recent book Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, in which Roach explores the world of sex research and researchers.

All of Roach's books are a quick and entertaining read, so if you finish with Spook, check out one of her others before the 27th. Though our focus will be on Spook, this is a rare chance to ask the author questions on any of her books.

Location TBA. If you have a location recommendation or a house where we could host this, please let me know ASAP. Due to the fact that the author will be joining us be phone, a cafe atmosphere will not be ideal.
