This evening we welcome popular science author Sam Kean, here for his new book, Caesar’s Last Breath: Decoding the Secrets of the Air Around Us (Little, Brown).
“A witty book that turns the science of stuff we breathe into a delightful romp through history. Kean, an award-winning science writer…has done it again, using his free-wheeling style to translate hard scientific facts into lively stories.” —Kirkus Reviews.
“Sam Kean has done it again—this time clearly and entertainingly explaining the science of the air around us. He is a gifted storyteller with a knack for finding the magic hidden in the everyday.” —Daniel H. Pink.
Sam Kean’s other books include the bestselling The Disappearing Spoon and The Violinist’s Thumb.
Co-presented with TOWN HALL SEATTLE INSIDE/OUT Science Series. While Town Hall itself undergoes renovations, they will be holding programs at various venues around the city.
