Kim Stanley Robinson and the Science Friday Book Club
Monday March 20: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Science Friday host Ira Flatow is sitting down with acclaimed science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson to talk about his latest book New York 2140. The book envisions a not-so-distant future in which sea levels have risen, the streets of New York have become canals, and skyscrapers have become islands. The discussion will include a Q&A, book signing, and a demonstration from the Science Friday Education team. Tickets are $15 and include a Strand gift card for the same amount.
