UW Health Sciences Library is hosting a free live webinar with author Camper English to talk about his latest book, Doctors and Distillers: The Remarkable Medicinal History of Beer, Wine, Spirits, and Cocktails. Camper English will reveal “how and why the contents of our medicine and liquor cabinets were, until surprisingly recently, one and the same.”
The author talk webinar will discuss the intertwining history of alcohol and medicine, from ancient Greece to today. Subjects will include histories of particular spirits, distillation methods and what those discoveries meant for the evolution of medicine, and common uses for beer, wine, and spirits both recreationally and medicinally.
A UW NetID is required to attend.
