Summer Reading books in Medicine and Science still available!


As summer draws to a close, don’t forget about these engaging medicine and science-based books. Though Dana Medical Library’s summer reading display has come down, many of these books will still be available in the main hall. For the month of September, you will find them, along with our summer reading booklist, on the cart around the corner from the display. And even when the cart disappears, remember that the books do not! They are still available to be checked out either at Dana or Bailey/Howe. Just simply refer to the booklist for suggestions.

Here are some highlights: Oliver Sacks’ newest book, On the Move, Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, Susannah Cahalan’s Brain on Fire, and Abraham Verghese’ Cutting for Stone.
