Science Book Club

Location:
Zoom

If you are a reader interested in science or a scientist interested in reading, the Science Book Club would love to have you! You don’t have to be a scientist to join the group, just come with curiosity and an open mind. Each month we’ll choose and discuss non-fiction science books, and invite local scientists with expertise related to that month’s book to join us in our discussion.

The Science Book Club meets online via the Zoom platform on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m.
