Three Upcoming Events in New York

I am happy to announce that I have three upcoming events in the greater New York City area.  On Thursday, April 19th at 4pm I will be speaking about the members of the philosophical breakfast club at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island as part of their Women in Science lecture series.  That event is free and open to the public.  I’ll be posting information here as soon as Brookhaven gets the listing up on their website.

On Monday, April 30th I will be discussing the writing process in general, and how I came to write The Philosophical Breakfast Club, at a Writing Biography Workshop held at St. John’s University.  There will be copies of The Philosophical Breakfast Club for sale, and I will be signing books after the discussion (bring copies you already own if you like!). The event is from 12:15-1:40pm.  I’ve just been told that a larger room for the event has been found, so we are able to open this up to non-faculty members!  If anyone would like to be on the list for admission to that event, please contact me and I’ll arrange it.

Finally, on Thursday, May 3, I’ll be the speaker at a “Food for Thought” luncheon sponsored by the Cambridge in America alumni group.  Besides lunch, a talk about the book and a book signing, there will be time to mingle and chat informally.  It should be fun!  This event is open to alumni of Cambridge University and their guests.  I’ll post registration information here when the event is up on the CIA website.

And then I’ll be off to Boston for the event at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard on the 9th, as previously announced.  It will be a busy spring!

I’m looking forward to all these opportunities to meet readers of The Philosophical Breakfast Club!
