Soul of the South

Attention Virginian readers of the Loom: I’ll be heading to warmer climes later this week to speak in Charlottesville at the Virginia Festival of the Book. On Thursday at 4 I’ll be speaking on a panel about science and society. On Friday at 4 I’ll be speaking again on scientific discoveries and how they change us. I’m looking forward to listening to my fellow panelists, who include Robin Marantz Henig and James Shreeve. See you there.
