On Monday, I'll be speaking at a master's tea at Morse College at Yale at 4 pm about outbreaks--real and fictionalized, viral and bacterial. It's free and open to the public. On Tuesday, I'll be participating in Story Collider, a marvelous series of performances in which people tell stories about science. I am a bit nervous about this one for a few reasons, not the least of which is that I go on stage after Bora Zivkovic. I've sat in Bora's car, listening to his stories, which he tells with one hand on the wheel and the other sweeping around in operatic gestures. I know what I'm up against. The fun starts at 8 pm in Brooklyn. Details are here.
