Mary Roach, Author of Gulp -- Adventures on the Alimentary Canal
Commonwealth Club 595 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94105
Oakland, California-based author Mary Roach is fascinated by popular science. To date, her books have covered topics as diverse as death (Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers), the afterlife (Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife), Sex (Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex), and extraterrestrial life (Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void). The latest subject of her curiosity is the much-maligned tube that runs from mouth to rear in all of us. With Gulp, she takes readers on a crazy tour of the invisible realm known as our digestive system. She looks for the answers to questions you didn't even know you had, but come to think of it ... Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before you literally burst? Can constipation really kill you? Join America's funniest science writer for a fun and funky examination of what it means to be a hungry human. A book signing follows Roach's presentation.
