So: I am hitting the road again this Thursday for about a week. The first stop: the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in San Francisco, where I won't be working on anything in particular, but just taking in the talks and talking to the people. If you're going to be there, leave a comment or send me an email; maybe there will be a chance to say hi. Coming back across the country after the AAAS meeting, I'll be stopping in the middle along the way. Turns out that on February 21, I'll be participating in the Bookslut.com reading series in Chicago, along with two distinguished science writers, Deborah Blum and Jennifer Ouellette. Here are the deets:

So if this is your area, come on and check it out. Since the Bears lost the Super Bowl, I guess the town will be a tad gloomy, but hopefully folks will be looking up by the time I get there. In any event, it's certain to be damn freezing. By the way, don't be put off by the word "reading"--I don't read, I speak. Readings are boring.
