The next book for discussion will be Gulp by Mary Roach. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, September 11:
- at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
- and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.
In Gulp we meet the scientists who tackle the questions no one else thinks — or has the courage — to ask: How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? Can wine tasters really tell a $10 bottle from a $100 bottle? Why is crunchy food so appealing? Can constipation kill you? Did it kill Elvis?
Go on location to a pet food taste-test lab, a fecal transplant, and into a live stomach to observe the fate of a meal. And like all of Roach's books, Gulp is as much about human beings as it is about human bodies.
We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!
