An Evening with Bestselling Science Journalist Sam Kean

November 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Sam Kean UF book talk

UF’s Science Journalist in Residence Program Presents an Evening with Bestselling Science Journalist Sam Kean on Wednesday, November 3 at 6 p.m. in the Pugh Hall Ocora at the University of Florida.

Science is a force for good in the world. But sometimes in history, obsession has pushed a noble pursuit into something sinister.

The University of Florida’s Science Journalist in Residence program presents an evening with bestselling science journalist Sam Kean. With his trademark wit and precision, Kean shares tales from his new book, The Icepick Surgeon: Murder, Fraud, Sabotage, Piracy, and Other Dastardly Deeds Perpetrated in the Name of Science, revealing rogue science and its consequences, like the links from dark histories such as Tuskegee and Nazi Germany to current vaccine hesitancy. Kean’s program will be followed by a book sale and signing.

This event is free and open to all. Join the College of Journalism and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service for this exciting event!
