What we’re about

This is a popular-science book club where we meet monthly to discuss a non-fiction science book. We normally meet at 7PM on the last Wednesday of the month, at the Bowie Branch Library, but meetings will also be accessible online for the foreseeable future. Members aren't obliged to attend every meeting; you can choose to read only those books that appeal to you. 
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"

You can view a complete historical list of the books we've read in the club.

You can also join our Facebook group at or our e-mail discussion group at <>.
