Gig Harbor Literary Society: Grunt by Mary Roach

Harbor History Museum and the Gig Harbor branch of the Pierce County Library invite you to join the Gig Harbor Literary Society, dedicated to exploring the literary world of historical fiction, nonfiction, and other works of interest. The April meeting for the 2017 Gig Harbor Literary Society be on Tuesday, April 4th at 6:00pm at Harbor History Museum.

The book for the April meeting will be Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach. Bestselling author Mary Roach explores the science of keeping human beings intact, awake, sane, uninfected, and uninfested in the bizarre and extreme circumstances of war. Grunt tackles the science behind some of a soldier’s most challenging adversaries―panic, exhaustion, heat, noise―and introduces us to the scientists who seek to conquer them.

Attendees are welcome to bring an appetizer or dish to share with fellow bibliophiles. The Museum will provide complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Enjoy a drink while you talk books? You are welcome to BYOW! (Bring Your Own Wine!) Museum and library staff will lead the discussion. Materials will be available for checkout at the Gig Harbor Library, as well as for purchase online at Amazon.com. 

This event is FREE and open to the public. Seats are limited; RSVPs are encouraged. To RSVP or for questions, please contact Liz Pedersen, Guest Services, at admin@harborhistorymuseum.org or 253-858-6722.
