Talking about science and writing

Jul 21, 2005

Last night, I attended the science writers book club at the home of (fellow RPCV) David Jarmul. (Erin’s book club was the night before.) I needed that – a chance to sit with smart people and talk about writing, books, science, medicine and magazines. The book of note was The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks, a book that is interesting but that pales in comparison to his more recent New Yorker articles (see my earlier post). Next month, we’ll read Defining the Wind, by Scott Huler, one of the book club attendees. Also at the meeting were Cathy Clabby, Rosalind Reid and Chris Brodie of American Scientist Magazine and Neil Caudle of Endeavors Magazine (Neil was an advisor on my thesis project).
