The Humanities in Medicine Committee of the Lamar Soutter Library is hosting a talk and book signing with Katya Lezin, author of But I Just Grew Out My Bangs! A Cancer Tale. The event will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Rare Book Room of the library.
Lezin lives in Charlotte, N.C., where she writes a weekly column for the Charlotte Observer. She describes herself as a “recovering attorney.” She is also the author of Finding Life on Death Row, a nonfiction profile of six individuals sentenced to death, and Knight Swam, a young adult novel that reflects her involvement in the world of competitive Scrabble. But I Just Grew My Bangs Out chronicles her battle with ovarian cancer.
Books will be available for purchase at the event. For additional information, contact Nancy Linnehan via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Humanities in Medicine Committee, which comprises faculty and staff from a range of disciplines, oversees the Humanities in Medicine Collection and works together with students to forge stronger connections among the sciences, humanities and the world of the clinical encounter.
