This popular discussion group meets in the Library every Wednesday at 10:00 until 11:30 p.m. It is perhaps a quarter century old and at times threatens to burst out of the Library, where it has met for years.
On Wednesday, June 14 you are invited to opt in on reading and discussing Neil deGrasse Tysonâ€™s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Â The book is already a best seller after about a month. The hardcover is only $11.37 from Amazon or you can absorb it via Kindle ($8.91).
Hereâ€™s what Amazon says about the book: â€śWhat is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? Thereâ€™s no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.Â But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.â€ť Read Chapter 2 for Wednesday
