A presentation by Sam Kean, whom Entertainment Weekly described as “the best science teacher you never had,” is coming up next week in Worthington.
Kean will be at the McConnell Arts Center (MAC), 777 Evening St., on Nov. 14.
The writer has two New York Times bestsellers to his credit— The Disappearing Spoon, which brings a human element to the elements of the periodic table, and The Violinist’s Thumb, a fascinating romp through the history of genetic science.
According to a Washington Post review, “In both books, Kean finds a way to frame complex and terribly important fields of science on a human scale, making them relatable and meaningful.”
Tickets for his presentation, which starts at 7pm, can be purchased for $10, including a meet-the-author reception. Tickets are available now at the MAC.
