Event

Mary Roach: Grunt
Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books present bestselling science writer Mary Roach, who will sign and discuss her new book, "Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War."

$30 admits one person and includes one copy of "Grunt." $35 admits two people, includes one copy of "Grunt," and $5 will be rebatable towards the purchase of a second copy at the event.

Much of military science is necessarily preoccupied with the study of violence, the development of strategy, of weapons and armaments, of warfare. But not all the battles of war involve drone technology and Bradley Personnel Vehicle. On a daily basis, soldiers also fight more esoteric battles against less considered adversariesfor example, exhaustion, shock, panic, disease, extreme heat, cataclysmic noise, gastrointestinal distress, and assorted waterfowl. In "Grunt," Americas favorite science writer Mary Roach explores those aspects of war that no one makes movies about--not the killing but the keeping alive.
