Emily at the Edge of Chaos With Lawrence Krauss and Janna Levin

Saturday, June 13, 2009
10:30 am - 11:30 am

In this one-woman show, join writer/comedian Emily Levine on two parallel journeys: from Newton’s rational universe to the universe of chaos and from her own perfect health to mysterious, devastating illness. A surprising, thought-provoking and entertaining meditation on what the lessons of science can teach us about ourselves, followed by a conversation with physicists Lawrence Krauss and Janna Levin.
