Video of New York Society Library Event

The video of my event at the New York Society Library on April 7th is now available on You Tube.  The darkness of the video makes it difficult to see me, but the sound quality is good.

Last Night at the New York Society Library

I had a wonderful time at the New York Society Library last night. The library, New York City’s oldest (founded in 1754), was a perfect setting for a discussion of the members of the Philosophical Breakfast Club and their time. During the Q & A, a lively discussion about the gap between science and the rest of culture ensued. Audience members agreed with me that scientists could, and should, do more today to bring their discoveries and excitement about science to the general public.

It was a thrill to be invited to speak to a membership that has, in the past, included Washington Irving, J.J. Audubon, Herman Meliville, Willa Cather, Lillian Hellman, and W.H. Auden.

Here are some photos from the event: books for sale, and the brochure for the event. Stay tuned for photos of my talk and possibly the video the library took.
