We are delighted to welcome Gavin Francis back to St Andrews to discuss his new book Shapeshifters.
His previous event, for Adventures in Human Being, was extremely popular, and this should be another great night.
To be alive is to be in perpetual change: growing, healing, learning, aging. In Shapeshifters, award-winning writer and doctor Gavin Francis considers the transformations in mind and body that continue across the arc of human life.
Medicine now has unprecedented power to alter our lives, but that power has limitations. As he helps patients face transformations both temporary and sustained, Francis draws on history, art, literature, myth and magic to show how the very essence of being human is change.
