Science has never been so accessible.

Take a great story, add fabulous facts and beautiful writing, and curious readers are avid for more.

Author and researcher Leslie Cannold talks to Dava Sobel and David George Haskell about their passion for science and how to make information compelling for all kinds of readers.

Dava Sobel’s Longitude, Galileo’s Daughter and now The Glass Universe, show how curiosity drives discovery, telling the stories of the people behind great leaps forward.

David Haskell has the good fortune to be a patient, thorough scientist with a glorious, heart-lifting love of words and ideas.

With Leslie Cannold asking the questions, this will be an inspiring session, one of those events that makes us feel good about humanity and our quest to discover and communicate.
