Pittsfield: Author talk with Dr. Andrew Lam

The Berkshire Athenaeum will host a free, in-person author event with Dr. Andrew Lam, who will share the history behind his new book, “The Masters of Medicine,” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 1. The book chronicles the greatest medical discoveries in modern times.

In his talk, "The Only Winner in War Is Medicine," Lam will discuss how World War II led to medical advances that benefit us all.

Lam is an award-winning author, historian and surgeon whose writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Times and the Washington Post.
