Terry in Dublin in June - Sold Out

To celebrate the lesser known festival Ankh-Morpork City of Science 2012, Science Gallery will host a very special event with the author of the iconic Discworld series, Terry Pratchett. Joining him will be the co-authors of The Science of Discworld series, Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen. The Science of Discworld series spans three books so far, each incorporating fictional stories from Pratchett's Discworld universe - which has a very different set of natural rules than our own - with serious scientific discussion.

Join us for a rare opportunity to discuss the origins of the universe and the beginnings of life (as well as its inevitable evolution) - all from a Discworld perspective - with the creator of Discworld and the scientists who brought it closer it to our reality. There will be a panel discussion with the authors, followed by a Q&A session where you will get to ask them about the physics of Unseen University, the evolution of The Librarian, and how this satirical fantasy universe has inspired three books on science.

Pity it's in Dublin though looks like it will be interesting, as the ones at the Discworldcon were when they did it there. :mrgreen:

Just finished listening to the unabridged version audiobook for the 1st one, I actually preferred it to the book the equations sounded simpler. :mrgreen:
