Oxmoor Page Turner’s Book Club - "Stiff" by Mary Roach

Date: 
10/08/2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Join us as we explore Mary Roach’s Stiff, an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem.  In this fascinating, ennobling account, Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries—from the anatomy labs and human-sourced pharmacies of medieval and nineteenth-century Europe to a human decay research facility, to a plastic surgery practice lab, to a Scandinavian funeral directors' conference on human composting. In her droll, inimitable voice, Roach tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.

The Book Club meets every second Tuesday of the Month at 6:30pm in the Boardroom. All adults welcome.
