Publishing is experiencing the twin phenomenon of a shrinking market for adult fiction while non-fiction sales boom. Prime among these are science books, written for lay readerships but still demanding both intellectually and technically. Readers who might not have picked up a science book since their last year at secondary school are fascinated by the current crop of science writing.

Bernard Beckett (“Falling for Science: Asking the Big Questions”), joins Paul Callaghan (“As Far As We Know: Conversations about Science, Life and the Universe”) and Lloyd Spencer Davis (“Looking for Darwin”).

Chair: Kim Hill, who co-wrote “As Far As We Know”.
