The Re[Space] café is starting a Book Group on the last Thursday of the month, 10.30 – 12.20 am.
The first meeting will be Thursday 25th April, and the book under discussion will be All That Remains by Professor Susan Black. All welcome. Just read the book and turn up. It couldn’t be simpler.
Susan Black is one of the world’s leading anatomists and forensic anthropologist, whose expertise has been crucial to many high profile criminal cases. She confronts death every day and, in All That Remains, she reveals the many faces of death that she has come to know.
‘Black’s utterly gripping account of her life and career as a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology manages to be surprisingly life-affirming. As she herself says, it is “as much about life as about death.’ – PD Smith Guardian
‘This fascinating look by a world-leading forensic scientist at what the dead can tell us is a real eye-opener… Sue Black must be one of the most unusual people in Britain… extraordinary…part meditation, part popular science and part memoir…the book offers a close-up and startlingly clear view of a subject that makes most of us look away.’ – James McConnachie Sunday Times
Book for May 30th: Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman.
Sex, intrigue and adultery in the world of high politics and huge wealth in late eighteenth-century England.
