2584 - Science Books: Some OLLI Member's Favorites
“There is no Frigate like a Book, to take us Lands away” wrote Emily Dickinson. Members of the OLLI Book Club visit new lands once a month. We invite you to join six of our members as we explore some of the science books we’ve recently read that “Took us Lands away”. There is no need for you to read all the books or indeed any of them-although we hope that you will read at least one book. The presenters and the books they present will include: Phil Carl: The Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee; Jeff Tuson: Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-made World by Mark Miodownik; Leslie Brinson: Life Ascending: The Ten Great Inventions of Evolution by Nick Lane: Elwood Linney: Neanderthal Man: In Search of Lost Genomes by Savante Paabo: David Sokal: From Bach to Bacteria and Back: The Evolution of Minds by Daniel Dennett: Doug Anderson: Napoleon’s Buttons by Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson.
