Geeking Out

April 13, 2009

April 15th: Gelf's First Geeking Out Event

Introducing Geeking Out, a new monthly reading series from Gelf held at JLA Studios in DUMBO, Brooklyn—only one subway stop away from Manhattan! Geeking Out features some of the best science writers and researchers around. In the third week of each month, three of the brightest minds in the field will share their expertise at the Jan Larsen Art Studios in Brooklyn.

The first event—which has been specially scheduled to intersect with Tax Day!—will take place at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, April 15th. Our impressive lineup (click on each guest's name for Gelf's interview with him) includes former Discover Magazine editor-in-chief Paul Hoffman, a noted enigmatologist and author who will be speaking about his most recent book, King's Gambit: A Son, A Father, and the World's Most Dangerous Game; John Derbyshire, conservative columnist for the National Review, and author of the mathematically-themed books Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics, and Unknown Quantity: A Real and Imaginary History of Algebra; and Glen Whitney, the founder of America's only math museum. The work of local artists will be on display as well.

Geeking Out will be held Wednesday, April 15th, at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios art gallery on 63 Pearl St in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. Admission is FREE. Drinks will be available. Please spread the word and bring your friends.
