Bowie Bevy of Brainy Books
This is a popular-science book club where we meet monthly to discuss a non-fiction science book. 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.
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"
