Booksmith Bookswap: Science Edition with Science Writer Carl Zimmer!
Our last bookswap of 2011 happens November 4th, and we're ready to go out with a Big Bang. That's right - a bookswap with a science theme, because nerds are cool now (thanks, Steve Jobs).

As always, kilos of delicious food (metric - for science!), 20% discount for bookswappers, and wine that flows like... well, wine.

We're delighted that the always interesting science writer Carl Zimmer will be joining us around 8:30 this evening! The author of eleven books, including the new SCIENCE INK: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed [really!], Zimmer is a frequent guest on radio programs such as Radio Lab and This American Life, and, since 2003, has written the award-winning blog, The Loom. is, to his knowledge, the only writer after whom a species of tapeworm has been named.

Bring any book that tickles your neurons (science fiction counts!), provided you can still talk about it after three drinks, and then be prepared to bittersweetly part with it. Don't fret about giving it up! Most patrons leave with armfuls of free books.

Tickets are $25, and this event ALWAYS sells out. Tickets must be purchased in advance, in the store, or at Brown Paper Tickets (or phone 800-838-3006).
