Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: A Popular Science Book Discussion Group
Sunday, March 26, 2017 3:30 PM–4:30 PM Main (Oakland)
Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history, or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a popular science book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years.

This group meets every other month on the fourth Sunday from 3:30 – 4:30 PM in the Director’s Conference Room on the First Floor of the Main Library.

March’s book selection is The Invention of Nature: Alexander Von Humboldt’s New World by Andrea Wulf – A prescient naturalist who was famous in his lifetime but little known today, Alexander Von Humboldt’s work impacted Darwin, Thoreau, and Jefferson. The Invention of Nature was winner of the 2016 Royal Society Science Book Prize and one of The New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year.
