Gene Expression Book Club – Autumn in the Heavenly Kingdom & Not Born Yesterday

October 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

I will be reading 1 chapter per week of:

Autumn in the Heavenly Kingdom.

Not Born Yesterday: The Science of Who We Trust and What We Believe

You can read both books, or just one. I will be putting up a post on both chapter commentaries on Fridays. I may do ancillary events such as livestreams or podcasts, depending on how it goes. I will add blog posts etc. from others in the links to my posts.
