We had a fantastic time participating in Festival of Museums at the weekend! From photography to pirates, there was something for everyone!
The finale of the weekend was a talk by Gavin Francis, an Edinburgh University alumnus, who took us on a tour of the human body. He was also signing copies of his excellent book, Adventures in Human Being, based on his experiences as a doctor. Informative and moving, this book has been incredibly well-received.
Today, we have two signed copies of the book to give away! All you have to do is identify this quote, which Gavin Francis includes in Chapter One:
‘Thus strangely are our souls constructed, and by such slight ligaments are we bound to prosperity or ruin’
To win, comment below, or contact us on Facebook or Twitter (#happylibrary) with the name of the book and the author! Need a hint? The library holds several copies of this 1818 book!
Remember, the library has more to offer than textbooks!
