We are deeply saddened by the passing on August 8, of our dear friend and longtime colleague, Beth Howard. Beth was a spectacularly talented and dedicated producer at the World Science Festival for nearly a decade. As Senior Creative Producer, she brought originality, leadership, vision, and excellence to everything she did. Her live event, film, and theatrical productions were memorable and many. We will treasure them for years to come. Perhaps our most enduring memories will be of Beth’s selflessness, humor, kindness, and resilience. While she was creating such magical projects, she was also battling cancer with enduring courage and grace. It never stopped her from tackling big, visionary projects, and it never compromised her boundless commitment to her work, her colleagues, her friends, and her family. We are heartbroken at the loss of such a unique and special soul.
