ATXSciRead: Science & Nature Book Club

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).

August ATXSciWri Happy Hour

August ATXSciWri Happy Hour

Join ATXSciWri for its second happy hour to chat about science communication. Stop by Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches in East Austin on Thursday August 16 from 6:00 to 7:30 and learn about plans for our fall workshop, book club, field trips, and co-work hours. Become a stakeholder in your local scicomm community and help us ramp up science communication in Central Texas! More info at www.atxsciwri.org.

Batch is on Manor, a block East of Airport Blvd on Austin’s East side. The cafe has craft beer and cider on tap, wine, and an espresso bar, in addition to a few hundred bottled beers in their cooler. Before 7:00, the corkage fee for those bottled beers is waived (it’s usually $2). For snacks, they have kolaches and salads. And on Thursday nights, Batch has a jazz band starting at 8:00, if you want to hang around after the ATXSciWri meet-up for live music.
