This is a popular science book club; we meet monthly (on the last Wednesday of the month) to discuss a non-fiction book.

The group is modelled on the Herndon VA Science Book Club, so we'll read books that are interesting, thought-provoking, and educational.  The goal is to have some thought-provoking fun.  Some books we've already read include:

    "Rabid: A Cultural History of the World's Most Diabolical Virus", by Bill Wasik and Monica Murphy.

    Mary Roach's "Packing For Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void"

    "A Universe From Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing", by Lawrence M. Krauss.

    Deborah Blum's "The Poisoner's Handbook"

    Sam Kean's "The Disappearing Spoon"

We meet at 7PM on the last Wednesday of the month, at the Panera at Bowie Town Center. Members aren't obliged to attend every meeting; you can choose to read only those books that appeal to you.

The group doesn't focus on any particular scientific field, so all of biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, geology, astronomy, mathematics, etc. are within its scope.
