Just a reminder that Jeff and I will be appearing at the Free Library Book Festival this Saturday. Our event is billed as:
Dave Goldberg and Jeff Blomquist | A User’s Guide to the Universe: Surviving the Perils of Black Holes, Time Paradoxes, and Quantum Uncertainty
Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 3:00PM
CLEAR Writers Salon: Room 108
In A User’s Guide to the Universe, Drexel University professor Dave Goldberg and Boeing Aerospace engineer Jeff Blomquist share the answers to pressing science questions about science like: Will the Large Hadron Collider destroy the world? Can we really build time machines? What is the probability of finding intelligent life on other planets? Their funny, clear, and illustrated explanations lead the reader through new and exciting discoveries in physics and cosmology. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jonathan Weiner commends, “I wish I’d had Goldberg and Blomquist as my physics teachers.”
Get there early, and be sure to see Paul Davies talk about his new book, “The Eerie Silence.” He’ll be on the main stage at 2, and we’re in the writer’s salon at 3. Make a day of it! And be sure to visit the vendors, including the Painted Bridge Quarterly booth, featuring works by various drexel authors.
