Bryn Nelson, PhD with Sally James

Award-winning science writer and onetime microbiologist who did major schooling at the University of Washington (a Ph.D. there) before shifting to a science writing program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Bryn Nelson visits Town Hall this evening for his scintillating new book, Flush: The Remarkable Science of an Unlikely Treasure (Grand Central).

"A book about poop? How gross, right? Actually, no, not at all -- and that's exactly the point Bryn Nelson makes in this smart, deeply researched book. The revulsion we feel toward an everyday bodily function is holding us back from a slew of imaginative and even ingenious responses to some of society's biggest problems. Can we find our way to a shittier and therefore happier future? Nelson thinks we can, and you will, too, after reading Flush."—Dan Fagin.

"Maybe you've long been fascinated with the world-saving, paradigm-shifting power of feces. Or perhaps you're brand new to the sustainable power of poop! Either way, Flush is a taboo breaker and a fecal fantasia."—Caitlin Doughty.

In conversation with Bryn Nelson will be Seattle science writer Sally James, who does an actual Seattle Science Writer website/blog

Presented by Town Hall Science in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company.
