Reading the Body: Live!

Stacy Bodziak, Managing Editor, Bellevue Literary Review

Not many literary evenings are divided into sections on "Dissection," "Bone," "Brain," "HEENT," and "Heart," but then again, it's not often that the readings are selected to complement Frank Netter's iconic illustrations. This past spring, the Bellevue Literary Review (BLR), a journal published by NYU School of Medicine, hosted "Reading the Body: Live!" an evening of poetry and prose that celebrated the closing night of the MSB Gallery's exhibit honoring Netter, "The Michelangelo of Medicine."

The featured readings - which span the BLR's thirteen-year archive - were brought to life by Kelly AuCoin and Carolyn Baeumler, talented actors that captivated the audience. Introductory remarks were made by Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, editor-in-chief of the BLR, and Matthew Vorsanger, MD, Chief Resident, Internal Medicine. The evening was sponsored by Division of Medical Humanities and the Master Scholars Program in Humanistic Medicine.
