8pm on Tuesday 19 April @ The Fleece
The Science Café has quite a few regulars and the conversation between speakers often wanders round to books. Social though the Café is, it’s not really the place for an extended discussion of whether or not Schrödinger’s Cat is a useful analogy – or even whether Erwin actually had a cat.
This is much more the stuff of book groups, and that’s where the idea of a book group loosely linked to the Science Festival and Café came from. The model is the usual fiction book group, but with a focus on science books, biographies and autobiographies.
We can start by finding a book to read a book ahead of each meeting, and talk about what we liked and what we didn’t, how the author tackled the topic and so on. From there, we can see how it goes. And if we start by meeting in a pub, if it turns out to be just me sitting at a table with a pile of well-thumbed paperbacks, at least I’ll have a pint to console me!
So come along to the Fleece, on Westgate in Otley (now run by local brewery Wharfebank), at 8pm on Tuesday 19 April, ready to chat! If everyone brings a favourite book or two we can choose one to talk about for next time.
