SPLAB LIVING ROOM features Peter Pereira
Tuesday, November 30th, 2010 – 7:00PM
Come hear physician-poet Peter Pereira read new poems exploring the history of medicine. Drawn from the life stories of famous and infamous physicians and scientists such as the humble Dutch cloth-maker who invented the microscope, the asthmatic French doctor who invented the stethoscope, the Alabama obstetrician who perfected his surgical technique operating on slaves, and more. These people changed the way we understand the body, health, disease, recovery, and the doctor-patient relationship.
Reading followed by discussion. Please bring a poem and copies to share. Hosted by SPLAB Living Room in Columbia City. Supported in part by an Individual Artists Grant from the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
