Introducing the Becker Library Special Collections Book Club

Anyone with an interest in medicine, literature or history is invited to take part in Becker Library’s Special Collections Book Club. Every few months, we’ll hold a discussion about a novel that features some aspect of medical history, then look at the primary sources that bring the stories to life.

The first book selection is Nina Siegal’s “The Anatomy Lesson.” Published in 2014, this historical novel provides an imagined backstory for Rembrandt’s 1632 oil painting “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp,” and serves as a perfect jumping-off point for a discussion on art, anatomy and the relationship between the two.

Discussion and Primary Sources Presentation:
Wednesday, June 27 at 4 p.m.
King Center, 7th Floor of Becker Library
RSVP here (RSVPs are encouraged but not required)

Future book club selections include:
“Year of Wonders” by Geraldine Brooks (2001)
“The Nature of Monsters” by Clare Clark (2007)
“The Essex Serpent” by Sarah Perry (2017)

We hope you can join us for this and/or upcoming discussions and presentations! Sign up to receive periodic emails about what we’re reading and when we’re meeting at
