Our September Book Club Selection

What happens to ourCover image of Mary Roach bodies after we die? What exactly is the definition of death? Is it our final destination or is death a term for another one of life’s processes? In this engrossing book, Mary Roach shares some of the more fascinating, bizarre, and educational uses cadavers have had for those left behind, including cadavers used for the benefit of science, body snatching, cannibalism, and the ever evolving and varied ways to dispose of our loved ones in the twenty-first century.

The Mt. Pleasant Library Book Club meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7pm at La Casa, located right next door to the interim library. For more information, please contact Ana Elisa de Campos Salles at anaelisa.decampossalles@dc.gov.
