Panel discussion with Lone Frank, James Gleick and Brian Greene, moderated by John Hockenberry as part of the World Science Festival in New York, USA.
Science grapples with some of the most abstract of ideas. Making these concepts relevant and engaging to a broad audience is a significant and vital cultural challenge. Can science be translated into accessible language without compromising its content? What role should the narrative of scientific exploration play in communicating scientific insights? Join a group of award-winning writers, including both scientists and journalists, who will illuminate from a broad range of perspectives the process of creating literary entryways into otherwise impenetrable subjects. James Gleick was the winner of the 2012 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books. Lone Frank's and Brian Greene's books were shortlisted for the 2012 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books.
A recorded video of this event will be available to watch online on the World Science Festival website after the event.
