I’m a big fan of National Public Radio’s “Science Friday”(Sci-Fri) program, and am very excited that they have a science book club that everyone is welcome to join.
Currently, they are reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Although published 200 years ago, the themes are still relevant today.
Check out Sci-Fri’s website: https://www.sciencefriday.com/segments/the-scifri-book-club-frankenstein/ for some great background information, and go to Frankenbook.org to read Frankenstein annotated by scientists, plus several excellent essays related to modern scientific inquiry.
A wrap-up discussion with author Elizabeth Bear will be aired on Science Friday on Feb. 9th.
