The Science Friday Book Club

You know how book clubs can be, well, a little annoying? No one reads the book. Someone gets tipsy and drones on and on about narrative and denouement. And the next book on the list is WHAT? (Who knew there was so much to be written about suburban, middle-aged, sandwich-generation, empty-nesters in crisis.)
We’ve got a solution: The Science Friday Book Club. You’ll never have to host at your house, the book will have something do to with science, and no one will know if you don’t read it.
We’ll choose one book a month, give you some time to read it, and then talk about it on the air. Help us develop our reading list. What book do you want us to tackle? Send your suggestions to and stay tuned. We’ll announce our first book in June.
