Nat Talk: A Series of Fortunate Events

Virtual

Drawing inspiration from Monty Python, Kurt Vonnegut, and even Ted 2, Dr. Sean B. Carroll's latest book, A Series of Fortunate Events, is a jovial ode to the power of chance. Join us for a very special Nat Talk, in which we will screen a video of the acclaimed writer, filmmaker, and biologist, as he reveals the improbable forces behind our most fundamental scientific truths. Following the recording, Sean will join us live for an audience Q&A..
