Exciting Bonus April Meetup WITH AUTHOR: "Science Matters" by James Trefil

James S. Trefil (born 1938) is an American physicist (Ph.D. in Physics at Stanford University in 1966) and author of more than thirty books. Much of his published work focuses on science for the general audience. Dr. Trefil has previously served as Professor of Physics at the University of Virginia and he now teaches as Robinson Professor of Physics at George Mason University. Among Trefil's books is Are We Unique?, an argument for human uniqueness in which he questions the comparisons between human intelligence and artificial intelligence. Trefil also regularly gives presentations to judges and public officials about the intersections between science and the law. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Trefil

I hope to see as many people as possible! If you can't make all three meetings in the next 2 months, try to make this one! I would love to have a good turnout for Dr. Trefil.
Please note this one will take place at La Madeleine. I will be there at least a half hour early to snag the back room.

    It was difficult to hear what was being said a good deal of the time.

    Don't worry; I'm at the Starbucks in the same shopping center and from here it looks like they're most definitely open.

    I just called and no one answered -- seems like they're closed. Is there a back-up venue?

    You did make sure they are open on Easter Sunday, didn't you?
