Just a quick reminder that the Boston Skeptics’ Book Club is meeting up this Saturday at 3 pm to discuss Them: Adventures with Extremists by Jon Ronson. There’s been a slight change of venue and we’re going to be in Harvard Yard this time, and here is a map of where we’ll be, with a giant green pepper marking our meeting spot (click to enlarge):
(Yes, that’s a giant green pepper, it was the coolest brush I could find in my open-source photo editing software, plus it’s totally appropriate since we’re having a picnic this time.)
In case you can’t make it out, it’s across from the Tanner Fountain (looks like a bunch of mist rising up from a circle of rocks) between the Harvard Science Center and the Sanders Theatre. There’s a little grove of trees (seen in the background here) and we’ll set up there with our books and our food. Bring whatever food you want–I’ll be bringing some plates, utensils, cups, and probably a fruit of some sort but everything is welcome as long as you bring yourself! We get at least one newcomer per meeting, so don’t be shy. The weather should be beautiful, and who wouldn’t want to hang out with a bunch of nerds skeptics on a Saturday afternoon anyway? Look, I even made it a Facebook event this time so you can RSVP!
Media Bonus: Here is the link of Jon Ronson at one of our Pub events. He starts talking about his extremist adventures at 5:54 and shows a video of the Cremation of Care at 17:00. Enjoy!
