The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected

The Summer 2018 Dartmouth Library Book Talk with author Marcelo Gleiser, Appleton Professor of Natural Philosophy

Wednesday, July 18, 2018
4:30pm – 7:00pm
Baker-Berry Library East Reading Room
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Marcelo Gleiser (Physics and Astronomy) has had a passion for science and fishing since he was a boy growing up on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Now a world-famous theoretical physicist with hundreds of scientific articles and several books of popular science to his credit, he felt it was time to connect with nature in less theoretical ways.  For this Summer 2018 Dartmouth Library Book Talk, Gleiser presents his book The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected: a scientist’s tribute to nature, an affirmation of humanity’s deep connection with and debt to Earth, and an exploration of the meaning of existence, from atom to trout to cosmos.
