History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series 
With Bill Hayes, author of The Anatomist: A True Story 

Wednesday, March 4, 2015
Refreshments at 5:30pm, Lecture at 6:00pm

Russ Berrie Pavilion, Room 1
1150 St. Nicholas Avenue at West 168th Street

As The New York Times has noted, “Bill Hayes has an unusual set of skills: part science writer, part memoirist, part culture explainer.” For his three nonfiction books to date, he has gone to unusual lengths in pursuit of his subjects. Hayes spent a year studying anatomy alongside medical students for his acclaimed book The Anatomist: A True Story of Gray’s Anatomy. He is now at work on a history of exercise, titled Sweat, for which he is delving into the life of sixteenth-century physician and early exercise advocate Girolamo Mercuriale.  Hayes will retrace his steps in researching his books and discuss the varying approaches he has taken in writing about the human body. 

Please join us on Wednesday, March 4 in Room 1 of the Russ Berrie Pavilion at 5:30 for refreshments, followed by the lecture by Bill Hayes at 6pm.  The Russ Berrie Pavilion, at St. Nicholas Ave. and West 168th St., is easily reached by the A, C, and 1 subway lines and numerous bus routes.
