The Big Bang Book Club--which discusses popular science books every month--meets at 7:00pm, Tuesday, June 23, at Grumpy's Bar & Grill (1111 Washington Ave S) to talk about The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson. It's a history of the worst cholera epidemic to hit Victorian London--and the scientist who finally won the battle against the disease.
As a special bonus, there's going to be an epidemiologist at this month's meeting. Tracy Sides, PhD, MPH is the epidemiology outreach coordinator for the BioWatch program at the Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy. She has graciously agreed to hoist a beer with us and make sure our discussions don't go too far astray.
The Big Bang Book Club is a monthly book club for non-scientists that relishes in folding arts and science into a heady brew. The club is sponsored by Magers & Quinn Booksellers; the Center for Science, Technology, and Public Policy; Secrets of the City; and Grumpy's. This event is free and open to the public.
