Adventures in Human Being
County Buildings, Main Hall
Thursday 1st October 2015

We all have one but for most of us the human body is a foreign country. An explorer by nature, Gavin Francis offers to be our guide. Drawing on his experiences as a doctor, he blends compelling case studies with historical reflections on the way the body has been imagined through the ages. Gavin Francis’s previous book, Empire Antarctica, won Scottish Book of the Year in 2013.
