It's hard to believe that the World Science Festival is now in its fifth year. What started out feeling like an experiment is now a New York institution. I'm looking forward to participating yet again, and hope you'll be able to join me. On Friday I'll be moderating an event called "Illuminating Resilience." Four experts will discuss how people withstand life's hardest shocks, and manage to bounce back. When: Friday, June 1 10 to 11:30 AM Where: NYU Global Center, Grand Hall. 238 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012. MapMore details and ticket ordering information here. On Saturday afternoon, The World Science Festival will be holding a free event called, "Meet the Authors: Conversations with Best-Selling Science Writers" I'll be kicking things off at 1 pm with a talk about Science Ink. We'll have temporary tattoos, special guests, and other surprises. And then stick around for other writers, including Lawrence Krauss and E. O. Wilson. Where: NYU Kimmel Center, Commuter Lounge, 60 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012 (2nd Floor, Room 203) MapDetails here
