Narrative Medicine Rounds are lectures or readings presented by scholars, clinicians, or writers engaged in work at the intersection of narrative and health care. Rounds are held on the first Wednesday of each month (September to May) from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Columbia University Medical Center Faculty Club, followed by a reception. Rounds are free and open to the public; no RSVP is necessary. Students, staff, faculty, patients, friends, and interested others are warmly welcome to join us.

This edition of Rounds will feature Rachel Adams, a writer and Professor of English and American Studies at Columbia University. She is the author of numerous academic articles and book reviews, as well as three books: Sideshow U.S.A.: Freaks and the American Cultural Imagination and Continental Divides: Remapping the Cultures of North America (both published by the University of Chicago Press), and her most recent, Raising Henry: A Memoir of Motherhood, Disability, and Discovery (Yale University Press). Her writing has also appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education and the Times of London.
