BOOKSMITH BOOKSWAP: Science Edition!

 

 

 

Our last bookswap of 2011 happens November 4th,

 

and we're ready to go out with a Big Bang.

 

That's right - a bookswap with a science theme,

 

because nerds are cool now (thanks, Steve Jobs).

 

 

As always,
 

kilos of delicious food (metric - for science!), 20%

 

discount for bookswappers, and wine that flows like...

 

well, wine. 

 

We’re delighted that the always interesting science

writer Carl Zimmer will be joining us around 8:30 this evening!

The author of eleven books, including the new SCIENCE INK:

Tattoos of the Science Obsessed [really!], Zimmer is a frequent

guest on radio programs such as Radio Lab and This American Life,

and, since 2003, has written the award-winning blog, The Loom.

He is, to his knowledge, the only writer after whom

a species of tapeworm has been named. Read more about him here.

 

 

 

Bring any book that tickles your neurons.

 

(Science Fiction counts!)  

 

 

Tickets are $25, and this event ALWAYS sells out. 

 

Tickets must be purchased in advance,

 

in the store, or at Brown Paper Tickets 

 

(or phone 800-838-3006).
