ATXSciRead: Science & Nature Book Club

January 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Austin Texas Science Writers (ATXSciWri) launched a science + nature writing book club in collaboration with BookPeople, ATXSciRead. For the January book club, we’ll read David Quammen’s “The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life”–a book delving into the history of molecular genetics and how it’s revolutionized how we think about the tree of life. If you’re interested in horizontal gene transfer, or how–for example–roughly eight percent of the human genome is a result of viral infection, then come discuss with us!  Head to BookPeople for 10% off if you mention the club or order online through the link. Save the date: Sunday, 1/6 at 4 pm on the third floor of BookPeople (use the back elevators).

We’ll revisit the classics and explore cutting-edge titles, from neuroscience to natural history, astrophysics to animal behavior. ATXSciRead meets the first Sunday of every month at 4 pm.
