Anthology Launch, Library Closing, Kickstarter Update and Curious Congress: Morbid Anatomy News for the Week

Thanks so much to all those who came out to Saturday night's Morbid Anatomy Anthology book launch and Museum soft opening! It was--thanks in no small part to our sponsor Hendrick's Gin--a great success and a ton of fun; you can see a few photos from the event above--and many more by clicking here--compliments of our friend Joel Schlemowitz.

Also, very big thanks also to all of those who have donated to our Morbid Anatomy Museum Kickstarter campaign! We have, at this point, just surpassed our 60K goal (!!!); If you have not yet donated--or would like to up your pledge!--we implore you to do so, as the more money we earn, more well-realized space we can build for all of us, and the more epic, Anatomical Venus cake bedecked parties we can host! To donate now, click here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1038582734/the-morbid-anatomy-museum. And, if have yet to purchase a copy of The Morbid Anatomy Anthology, a $25 donation to this Kickstarter (add $10 for international orders) will get you a copy of the book in the cheapest way possible. And, of course, you'll also be supporting an excellent cause at the same time!

Also, if you are free this evening, hope to see you at the inaugural night of the Congress for Curious Peoples lecture series at Coney Island USA, wherein Morbid Anatomy Museum board member Evan Michelson will elucidate us on the uncanny beauty of industrial wax mannequins. You can find out more on that here; A full schedule of the entire Congress can be found here.

And one more news alert: I am sad to say that The Morbid Anatomy Library will be closed until we move it into the new space; we expect it to reopen there in bigger and better form late May or early June. Stay tuned for more on that!

Thanks again to all of your for your support, and can't wait to see you at the new space!
