April Events

I’d like to remind everyone of an upcoming event: A Writing Biography Luncheon, at which I will be talking about the challenges—and the joys—of writing The Philosophical Breakfast Club. This will be held on Monday, April 30th at St. John’s University in Queens, New York at 12:15pm. The event is free and open to the public (and lunch will be served!). To register, and get directions to the event, please email CTL@stjohns.edu or call (718)990-1859. For more information, see the poster below.

I am also sorry to announce that the lecture scheduled for Thursday, April 19th at the Brookhaven National Labs has been postponed, new date TBA. I invite all Long Island fans of The Philosophical Breakfast Club to join me in Queens on the 30th instead!
