Dr. Jonathan Reisman: “The Unseen Body: A Doctor’s Journey Through the Hidden Wonders of Human Anatomy”

Join us for a discussion of physician and author Jonathan Reisman’s new book The Unseen Body: A Doctor's Journey Through the Hidden Wonders of Human Anatomy.

Dr. Reisman illustrates the complex structures and catastrophic potential of the human body with examples from his medical education and practice, from travels with indigenous peoples around the world, and from adventures in eating uncommon meats. His widely-praised book is informative and accessible to laypeople, health sciences students, and scientists alike.

Books will not be available for sale at this event, but members of the local Making Worlds Bookstore co-op will be on hand to take orders.
