Presented with New York’s innovative storytelling organization, The Moth, scientists, writers and esteemed artists tell on-stage stories about their personal relationship with science. In keeping with Moth tradition, each story must be true, and told without notes in ten minutes. The result is a poignant, hilarious and always unpredictable evening of storytelling and science. Participants include Leonard Mlodinow (The Drunkard’s Walk) and Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek.
