Book Club: 'The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat' Nov. 15

Join the Webster University Book Club at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Library Conference Room for a discussion of a modern classic of medical case histories, The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat: and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks.

The Kirkus Review called Sacks, “A neurologist who writes with wit and zest,” and claimed “The book ranks with the very best of its genre. It will inform and entertain anyone, especially those who find medicine an intriguing and mysterious art.”
