The NIH Library and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) are pleased to present The NIH Big Read. This is an exciting new program featuring a series of book discussions about a single book to be held at NIH over several months, culminating in a special final event featuring the author of the book. The inaugural NIH Big Read book will be The Gene: An Intimate History by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Emperor of All Maladies.

The program kicks off with an opportunity to discuss the book with your colleagues and NIH Librarians at one of our Book Discussion events. The NIH Big Read will conclude with an event featuring the author, Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, to be held on April 17, 2017 in Masur Auditorium in Building 10. Following the presentation, there will be a meet and greet with Dr. Mukherjee on the FAES Terrace.
