CCS distinguished lecturer

The first CCS Distinguished Lecturer for 2010 - 2011 will be Mary Roach, author of "Stiff", "Spook" and "Bonk' and now "Packing for Mars".

This will be of interest to CCS Literature and Science students, as Mary writes about science, particularly biology  - "Stiff" looks into "the curious lives of human cadavers",  "Spook" into claims of the afterlife and "Bonk"  into the somewhat whackier aspects of the physiology of sex (see reviews).

She will be available to talk with CCS students in the Gallery on Monday October 4th at 4:00 PM and will be giving an arts & lectures address in Campbell Hall at 8:00 that evening. (General $10, Students $6)

This is an opportunity to converse with a successful and off-the-beaten track author who is noted for a combination of insight & humor.  Be sure to visit her website  and read her biography.
