Science is changing the way we look at obesity. The onset of the obesity epidemic began in this century with the advent of a more leisurely, less physically demanding lifestyle and the availability of ready-to-eat, calorie-dense foods. While our diets and activity level may have changed in the past century, the human body has not.

If you have ever been interested in weight-loss surgery, come to a seminar to introduce you to some relatively new concepts regarding the disease/biology of obesity and the response of the disease to various therapies available today. Dr. Jack Rutledge, director of the Metabolic Surgery Center at Memorial Hospital, will conduct this educational seminar May 13 at 6 p.m. in the Carmichael House Conference Room. Please call the nonfiction desk to reserve your seat.

Activities scheduled for the week of April 28 include: Teen Book Talk, April 29 at 4:30 p.m. in the Teen Zone. Book discussion will be on “Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment” by James Patterson.

Tween Book Chatter will be on April 29 at 4:30 p.m. in the Children’s Activity Room. Book discussion will be on the book “Thea Stilton & the Dragon Code” by G. Stilton. Tween Movie Matinee on May 3 will be a Percy Jackson Double feature, “The Lightning Thief” and “Sea of Monsters.”
