The Authors Speak Series kicks off a brand new line up beginning at 7 p.m. in the upstairs rotunda of Mesa Public Library Jan. 27 with two science writers, both frequent contributors to the New York Times.
Scientist or not, everyone is welcome to the free talk by these professionals who also run the annual Santa Fe Science Writers Workshop each summer. The authors will offer tips of the trade on the basics of how to translate complex scientific information into language accessible to laymen.
George Johnson has written about science for the New York Times, National Geographic Magazine, Slate, Scientific American, Wired, The Atlantic and other publications. The author of numerous books, his most recent books are “The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments,” which is being translated into 15 languages; and “Miss Leavitt’s Stars: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Discovered How to Measure the Universe.” Other books include “Strange Beauty: Murray Gell-Mann and the Revolution in 20th-Century Physics” and “Fire in the Mind: Science, Faith, and the Search for Order,” which were finalists for the Royal Society Science Book Prizes.
