The NIH Big Read 2018 featuring Ed Yong - I Contain Multitudes - Book Discussion

May 22, 2018

12:00pm - 1:00pm

Building 10, NIH Library Media Room

The NIH Library and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) are pleased to announce the NIH Big Read 2018 featuring I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life by Ed Yong. This book, published in 2016, examines the world of the microbes that exist within and around us in a fascinating tour that takes us through their history, and illuminates the impact they have on our daily lives.

Before the final event in June, we invite you to discuss the book with your NIH colleagues in a series of book discussions hosted by the NIH Library in April and May. Additionally, Institute and Center staff are encouraged to schedule and hold separate book discussions. The NIH Library is offering two sessions on how to set up and run an independent book discussion to help you get started. See below for links to sign up for the Book Discussions and the Training Sessions.
