DYMOCKS Joondalup’s Books at Bars series continues next month with Nikki Stamp.

Dr Stamp is one of only a handful of female heart and lung surgeons in Australia.

She holds a Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in cardiothoracic surgery and trained at some of the country’s busiest hospitals.

She also has a strong desire to change the way we think about health.

Dr Stamp will be at The Ashby Bar and Bistro from 6pm on July 10 to celebrate her new book Can You Die of a Broken Heart?, which explores how emotions and lifestyle affect the heart.

When actress Debbie Reynolds died a day after her beloved daughter Carrie Fisher the world diagnosed it as heartbreak.

But what’s the evidence?

Does emotional upheaval affect the heart?

Can love or chocolate really heal our heart problems?

And why do we know so much about heart attacks in men, when they are more fatal in women?

Copies of the book will be available to buy and have signed.

Tickets are $7 from www.trybooking.com/372921.
