A Man Without Breath (Bernie Gunther #9)
Tuesday, April 23 7 PM

Join us for a thrilling evening with the national bestselling author of eight previous Bernie Gunther novels. Kerr's powerful new novel returns Bernie to the Eastern Front, where he is asked to investigate a mass grave site in the Katyn Forest.

Kerr masterfully explores morality's shadowy gray edge. – Kirkus Reviews

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary CanalMARY ROACH will discuss
Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal
Thursday, April 25 at 7 PM

The ever-informative and always entertaining author explores the alimentary canal – the much-maligned tube from mouth to rear. In Gulp, we meet the scientists who tackle questions like, "How much can you eat before your stomach bursts?" "Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself?" and "Why is crunchy food so appealing?"

As with all of Roach's books (Stiff, Packing for Mars), her latest is as much about human beings as it is about human bodies.
