Morbid Anatomy Library In The New York Times; Open Tomorrow (Saturday, February 8) 2-6 PM; No Appointment Necessary!

Curious to know more about our own Brooklyn-based Morbid Anatomy Library? If so, you could do much worse than to check out this lovely writeup in The New York Times entitled "Death in the Afternoon, Then Drinks."

If the library seems of interest, why not pay us a visit? We are open to the public every Saturday from 2-6 PM; our next open day is tomorrow, February 8. We are located at 543 Union Street, (at Nevins). enter via Proteus Gowanus Gallery. Admission is free although, as the article mentions, "donations are accepted, both monetary and material." Some of our donated object include "a pair of emu feet and the human skeleton — a medical teaching model — [which] are here 'basically because wives wanted to get them out of the house.'"

Hope to see you at the library very soon!
