Off the Page with Science Writer Sam Kean

November 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Gulf Gate Library hosts science writer Sam Kean for a discussion on life as a science writer and the stories brought to life in his books as part of “Off the Page Literary Celebration.” Sam Kean spent years collecting mercury from broken thermometers as a kid, and now he’s a writer in Washington, D.C. His stories have appeared in The Best American Science and Nature Writing, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Slate, and Psychology Today, among other places, and his work has been featured on NPR’s Radiolab, Science Friday, and All Things Considered.
