So far, the forecast is calling for a partly cloudy/sunny day with a high in the 80’s, so it should be a beautiful day to get together in our normal meeting spot at Christopher Columbus Park and discuss An Anthropologist on Mars by Oliver Sacks. Meeting time is 3 pm, as usual. I’ll bring the SPF 70 sunscreen! (That is not an exaggeration.)

If you want a little extra, you should check out Temple Grandin by HBO Films (I saw it the other day and it was a pretty good biopic). It covers her early life and how she became such an accomplished scientist and how she learned how to deal with Asperger’s (and a good dose of sexism). If you don’t have HBO but you want to hear more about Temple, Terry Gross did an interview with her earlier this year that is definitely worth a listen.

Come one, come all! Even if you haven’t read/finished the book, you know you want an excuse to hang out in the sun and discuss science. See you there!

Have fun everyone. I will miss being there.

I need to find a legal way to watch Temple Grandin.

It stars Clair Danes!

Sorry you couldn’t make it, but I scheduled the next one for Aug. 28th so you can come too. This time, we’re thinking about making it a picnic on the Boston Commons.

Claire Danes was awesome as Temple too. I’m sure the movie will be available on Netflix soon :)
