Please join the Institute for Humanities Research's Health Humanities Initiative for an afternoon celebration and conversation of David Sklar's new book "Atlas of Men." Sklar will read from and speak about the book.

Though food will be served, please keep in mind that the Institute for Humanities Research is a peanut-free space.

"Atlas of Men"

Dr. Robert Thames has just learned that his government job is soon to be cut when three boxes arrive unexpectedly on his doorstep. They contain files from a secret research study conducted at his prep school decades ago. Robert has avoided thinking of this degrading "study," especially the naked photos of each student. He tracks down four close friends from Dexter Academy, and together they uncover the terrible truth of what was buried by the faculty, the school and the boys themselves.

David Sklar

David Sklar is a professor in the School for the Science of Health Care Delivery and senior advisor to the university provost in health policy and health professions education. He is an editor of Academic Medicine and an emergency physician. Along with "Atlas of Men," Sklar is the author of "La Clinica," a memoir which details his experiences as a volunteer in a rural Mexican medical clinic.
