This month, we’ll discuss “Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers” by Mary Roach. The location will be announced soon!
“One of the funniest and most unusual books of the year….Gross, educational, and unexpectedly sidesplitting.”―Entertainment Weekly
Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers―some willingly, some unwittingly―have been involved in science’s boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.
