The books covered can be anything (though not everything..sorry for the misnomer) we feel like covering, but they may circle around historical fiction, crime and well-known works of fiction. Books and meeting times are decided by the whole group every two months, but discussions can also take place in the forums!

[close] This group explores the pharmaceutical sciences in popular books. One book is selected by the membership every 2 months. The topics may include the history of drugs or chemicals, current issues in therapy and interesting books about specific medications or chemicals both past and present. We strive to identify books in popular culture, not technical books or journal articles. The goal is to explore the public understanding of the pharmaceutical sciences.
