Science & Nature Book Club: She Has Her Mother’s Laugh

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

The book club is taking off for the month of August. We’ll be back in September to discuss She Has Her Mother’s Laugh by Carl Zimmer. In this sweeping, resonating overview, Zimmer presents a history of our understanding of heredity—a force that shaped our society and that is set to shape our future even more radically.

From Goodreads: “She Has Her Mother’s Laugh presents a profoundly original perspective on what we pass along from generation to generation…Weaving historical and current scientific research, his own experience with his two daughters, and the kind of original reporting expected of one of the world’s best science journalists, Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent bioethical quandaries arising from new biomedical technologies, but also long-standing presumptions about who we really are and what we can pass on to future generations.”

We’re still meeting virtually. Join us at by Google Meet Sunday, 9/6 at 4 p.m. to discuss.
