2021 Six Bridges Book Festival
Six Bridges Presents: Food, Sweat, and War
In addition to the Six Bridges Book Festival in the fall, throughout the year you can take advantage of Six Bridges Presents, an ongoing series of talks. Coming up, you can participate in the following discussions. Learn about the books from the authors themselves, experience engaging moderators, and even ask your own questions. Sign up now and mark these unmissable events on your calendar.
Ottawa-based professor Sarah Everts discusses her book, The Joy of Sweat. The sultry summertime brings Everts as your guide to “a taboo-busting romp through the shame, stink, and strange science of sweating.” Sponsored by UAMS Department of Medical Humanities & Bioethics and Department of Dermatology.
This event is free.
Shugri Said Salh discusses her book, The Last Nomad: Coming of Age in the Somali Desert. Another hot one, this memoir provides a “fascinating look at a disappearing culture” and has been called “brilliant and riveting.”
This event is free. Registration on the Zoom platform is required.
