The Science Friday Book Club is back! This time around, we’re traveling back to the late 1970s, to the early days of the computer revolution, with Tracy Kidder's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Soul of a New Machine.
 
Join Ira and Tracy at Google’s New York City headquarters for light refreshments and an engaging conversation about one team’s high stakes drive to build and debug a 32-bit minicomputer. Space is limited, so complete the form below to add your name to the list. Pre-registration is required, and we’ll follow up in advance to confirm that your spot has been reserved.
 
You can order The Soul of a New Machine from Powell’s at a 30 percent discount. In the mean time, take a sneak peek at what's in store by checking out this excerpt.

Time: Doors open at 6:00 p.m.; discussion is at 6:30 p.m.
