Join us for an engaging and enlightening evening at Meijer Gardens with accomplished author, researcher, and physician Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee. Dr. Mukherjee’s celebrated book, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction and is the focus of an engrossing three-part PBS series by Ken Burns. His most recent book, The Gene: An Intimate History takes on the critical question: “What becomes of being human when we learn to ‘read’ and ‘write’ our own genetic information?” It debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Dr. Mukherjee is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, where his laboratory is on the forefront of discovering new cancer drugs using innovative biological methods. He is a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and the New York Times. Don’t miss out on what promises to be a thought-provoking, even life altering evening. Dr. Mukherjee shares compelling insights on his writing and his work in our biennial Physician as Writer lecture.
