Book Club: "The Body" by Bill Bryson

Adults

Join our Marathon City Branch staff and others who like to chat about books for June's discussion of Bryson's head-to-toe tour of the human body!

Bryson is the incomparable companion through the human body-- how it functions, its remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can fail. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular.

If the group can meet safely in good weather outside we'll try that, and we'll still include a virtual option for anyone to participate. New people are always welcome! Call the Marathon City Branch for more information.
