I am looking forward to my visit to the Arboretum, and would love to see friends and fans of The Philosophical Breakfast Club there.

Cambridge in America Event: May 3rd

The Cambridge in America group has put a nice announcement of my May 3rd “Food for Thought” luncheon on their website (it’s the second screen that appears after you get onto the site; or you can click here for the direct link).

I’m very excited about the opportunity to meet fellow Cambridge alumni and their guests over lunch! And I’m very pleased that we will be meeting in the Century Association, a London-style club founded in 1847 by William Cullen Bryant which was intended for “Artists, Literary Men, Scientists, Physicians, Officers of the Army and Navy, members of the Bench and Bar, Engineers, Clergymen, Representatives of the Press, Merchants and men of leisure.” (The club finally began to admit women members in 1989.) So it will be an occasion to chat about The Philosophical Breakfast Club in an actual club! I look forward to seeing friends and fans of the book on May 3rd.

Science as a Social Activity

A blog post I wrote, ‘Science as a Social Activity,’ for the Royal Institution of Australia, in advance of their book club discussion of The Philosophical Breakfast Club on November 16, is now up on their website, here.

I’m pleased they are offering the opportunity to send in questions for me, which I will be answering during an interview we will be conducting by video in the next few weeks, and which will be played during the book club meeting. More details on that to follow!
