Tomorrow: Best American Science Writing 2008 Panel in New York

If you live in striking distance of Columbus Circle in Manhattan, come on over to Borders at 7 pm tomorrow. I’ll be speaking on a panel about The Best American Science Writing 2008, which is just out. I’ll talk about cancer as a nasty side effect of evolution, and Pulitzer-prize winner Amy Harmon will talk about what it’s like to face life with a lethal gene. This year’s editor, author Sylvia Nasar, and the series editor Jesse Cohen will be there too.
