It’s been a remarkable month for Quirky Quarks: A Cartoon Guide to the Fascinating Realm of Physics. At one point — and I’m not sure for how long— the book made the Top 10 Best Selling Physics books in Canada. Wow. That’s a feather in my hat that I most sincerely did not expect!
On Thursday, July 7th, I’ll be talking about that very book at the University of Toronto. My presentation will feature a selection of comics and cartoons from Quirky Quarks, and I’ll be talking about how the book came to be, and what experiences I’ve gathered from the collaboration. If that’s not enough bait to get you there, then how about this: there will be cookies! (The cookies are real, and not some theoretical exotic matter from the adjoining physics lab.)
Speaking of labs, the presentation will take place in room 134 of the McLennan Physics Building at 60 St. George Street. I find it a strange and wonderful coincidence that I live a mere 650 meters from an actual lab, in which groundbreaking discoveries are made!
So if you’re in Toronto, I invite you to attend. Here are the deets:
