Local author, mathematical physicist at BU, and most importantly Booksmith regular Amir Aczel has been generating waves (gravitational waves from the Big Bang, am I right?)
with his provocative new book Why Science Does Not Disprove God. Check out these: Alan Lightman's review in the Washington Post and a more recent one in Forbes.
Aczel will be here tomorrow night at 7 to discuss the new book. We
can't recommend highly enough that you attend! In fact, if I am reading
the gravitational waves correctly, it appears that you already have
attended, albeit in an alternate universe. Well, come again anyway!
Thursday marks the next meeting of our Small Press Book Club,
where Natasha will lead the discussion around The Weirdness
by Jeremy Bushnell. Our longstanding Booksmith Book Club met last night
and decided that next on the list is Dave Egger's latest novel, A Hologram for the King. Early next week we welcome Ayelet Waldman and Gabrielle Zevin.
See you around the store!
The terrific folk duo Fox & Branch will be
performing a wonderful family concert at Club Passim in Harvard Square
on Saturday, April 26 at 10:30am. Their music is a regular feature on
the airwaves of our home, and the kids and I can attest to the quality
of their live shows. Don't miss this great show, and this terrific
music! Original songs mixed with funny and respectful reworkings of
traditional folk standards, played on banjo, guitar, washboard and
spoons by two great guys. And they visit the bookstore every time they
pass through Boston! Get your tickets here.
