Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

The Young Prose Book Meetup is a casual and friendly book Meetup for young professionals in DC between the ages of 21 and 35 who like discussing books and drinking beer! We usually meet on the last Wednesday evening of each month at Kitty O'sheas DC in Tenleytown. Please RSVP to victor.benitez@dc.gov or visit http://www.meetup.com/youngprose.

Dr. Barnard PhotoNeal Barnard, M.D., renowned nutrition researcher and New York Times bestselling author, discusses the connection between nutrition and health.

Dr. Barnard's clinical research revolutionized the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes, and in his talk he will share information about how to not only control, but even reverse, this condition. He will also reveal how the same simple diet changes that benefit diabetes patients also bring a wide range of health benefits including weight control, lower cholesterol levels, protection from memory loss, and greater vitality to last a lifetime.

Many people are looking to lose weight healthfully, and we will show a proven way for weight control that relies on food choices, rather than starvation diets or gimmicks.

Explore the library's catalog to see some of Dr. Barnard's books in the collection.
