|Metabolism, behavior, sleep, mood swings, the immune system, fighting, fleeing, puberty, and sex: these are just a few of the things our bodies control with hormones. Armed with a healthy dose of wit and curiosity, medical journalist Randi Hutter Epstein takes us on a journey through the unusual history of these potent chemicals from a basement filled with jarred nineteenth-century brains to a twenty-first-century hormone clinic in Los Angeles.
In Aroused: The History of Hormones and How They Control Just About Everything, Epstein exposes the humanity at the heart of hormone science with her rich cast of characters.
This event features a discussion about the book with the author, followed by a meet-and-greet opportunity.
General Admission: $10
