Meet the author - David Macaulay

David Macaulay, the author of The Way Things Work will be at the Central Library's Centennial Hall on November 15th at 2:00 p.m.

The Way We Work book cover

He will be discussing his latest book The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body.

"...this volume tackles the human body in the author's usual style. Divided into seven sections that connect related systems, the book covers cellular structure at the atomic scale, DNA, and metabolism; respiration and circulation; digestion and elimination; the nervous and endocrine systems; the immune system and fighting infections; the skeleton, musculature, and movement; and reproduction. Macaulay combines a detailed description with frequently whimsical, yet very informative, color diagrams to illustrate the body's functions. " Description from the review in School Library Journal.
