Jump the Science Divide: Science Festival Events at the Library

The Cambridge Science Festival is happening in April and this year, you won't want to miss the first-ever Friends of the Cambridge Public Library events offering a look at science as it intersects with poetry and science from a comic perspective.  Read more about jumping the science divide in the Friends President's contribution to the Cambridge Science Festival blog.

On Tuesday April 16, 6-8pm Nick Montford, poet, co-author of "10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10", and associate professor of digital media at MIT, will lead a discussion about the intersections and common grounds of poetry and science.

On Saturday, April 20, 2-4pm, guest speakers Jay Hosler, author of "Clan Apis" and "Sandwalk Adventures", local artist E.J. Barnes, author of "Caroline's Catalog", and Rosemary Mosco, field naturalist and cartoonist, join us for a fun and interactive exploration of how comics and science work together.

Both events will be at the Main Library Lecture Hall. Find out more at the CPL website.
