Randi Hutter Epstein | Aroused: The History of Hormones and How They Control Just About Everything

Tuesday, June 26

Community Parkway District

Please join Randi on the launch date of her latest book, Aroused, which takes us on a guided tour through the intellectually arousing history and science of hormones. Randi’s prior book Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank won high praise including being called by NPR a “delightful—and sometimes disturbing” romp through the history, fads, and science behind making and having babies. Randi earned her MD from Yale University, and MS and an MPH from Columbia University and an undergraduate degree, focusing in the history and sociology of science, from the University of Pennsylvania. Her articles have been published in the New York Times, among other national publications. She lives in New York City.
