Award-winning scientist and author Sean Carroll to discuss new book, ‘Brave Genius’ that examines the relationship between Nobel Prize winners.
Based on his latest book Brave Genius, Carroll will illuminate the never-before-told account of the intersection of two of the most insightful minds of the 20th century, Jacques Monod and Albert Camus.
Drawing from a wealth of previously unpublished materials, Carroll will reflect on Camus' and Monod's roles in the Resistance following the Nazi occupation of France and the twists of circumstance that led to their friendship, their roles as leading voices of modern literature and biology and eventually as Nobel Prize recipients in their respective fields.
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-seated basis.
Parking is available in Wesley Place Garage, 21st Avenue and Scarritt Place.
