Science writer Mary Roach can make absolutely anything funny and fascinating. In Stiff, she hung around with crash-test bodies and other charitable cadavers. Spook sent her on a quest to figure out the afterlife. Roach's latest book, Bonk, tackles a topic that is at once private and universal. That's right: S-E-X. With her wonderful wit and impeccably thorough research, Roach throws open the bedroom doors to reveal the science of sexuality. She reads from this brand-new book (which contains such chapters as "The Testicle Pushers: If Two Are Good, Would Three Be Better?" and "The Sausage, the Porcupine and the Agreeable Mrs. G") at 7 p.m. this evening at Left Bank Books (399 North Euclid Avenue). The reading is free — and, given the popularity of Roach's work, you may want to arrive early to snag a seat. Call 314-367-6731 or visit www.left-bank.com for more information.
