John Corso, M.D., author of “Stupid Reasons People Die: An Ingenious Plot for Defusing Deadly Diseases,” will be at Readers’ Books on Monday, August 27th, at 7:30 p.m., to talk about how diseases are misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and not always the usual suspects.

Corso discusses several deadly bugs that we simply don’t think about enough. The individual is the best person to find these bugs, and Dr. Corso illustrates that we have a lot to learn. He emphasizes preventative medicine, asking questions, and then asking more questions. He also believes that the medical field should take more time with patients. Through examples he shows how diseases are missed by the professionals and even though we may have a “feeling” that something isn’t right, we don’t push the “experts.” This is a book chock full of the kinds of actions we can take to improve our health. It is also a compendium of surgical and medical treatments for various life-threatening conditions.

John Corso is an internist who has been practicing for over 20 years. He lives in Bend, OR with his wife and two children.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.

Becky Kemery, author of “Yurts: Living in the Round,” will be at Readers’ Books on Tuesday, August 28th, at 7:30 p.m., to talk about the story of the yurt, starting with the nomads of Central Asia who still use the yurt today, just as their ancestors did, and ending with innovative modern yurts used as everything from campground homes to permanent homes and offices.

Kemery encountered her first yurt in the early 1990s at a retreat center. Since then she has lived in four different yurts in three states, through all kinds of weather, in community situations, and by herself. As an insider she knows the potential pitfalls as well as the joys of living in a round space. She advocates for making a home that doesn’t drain natural (and personal) resources. She knows about the companies that supply yurts, the different heating, foundation, and floor options, and the steps to take before setting up. The book has photographs as well as information on building and zoning codes, interior design, and much more.

Becky Kemery currently lives in the mountains of northern Idaho surrounded by herb and vegetable gardens. In 2002, she founded the North Idaho Public Forum on Sustainability (PFOS), which sponsors monthly forums on topics relating to sustainability.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.
