When the general public wants to gain a user-friendly explanation of scientific principles, they often go to the library for a helpful reading resource. Bestselling authors know how to capture a reader’s attention with wit and intrigue while skillfully engaging readers in simple explanations of challenging concepts.
Sam Kean is such a masterful & charming science author.
Sam Kean, author of the NY Times bestsellers The Disappearing Spoon and The Violinist’s Thumb, will be here in Toledo to share his humor and masterful combination of science, history and cultural context on Thursday, November 13. The Toledo Section of the American Chemical Society in partnership with the Toledo-Lucas County Library invites the public to attend an Evening with Sam Kean at McMaster Auditorium in the Main Toledo Library starting at 6:30 pm. This free OPEN BOOK forum will include a pre-talk reception, talk by the author, Q&A and book signing.
Sam Kean’s work has also appeared in the NY Times Magazine, Mental Floss, Slate, and New Scientist and been featured on NPR’s Radiolab and All Things Considered. Michael Schaub of National Public Radio describes Sam Kean as “one of America’s smartest and most charming science authors,”
