On Wednesday 6th June we’re absolutely delighted to welcome back Dr Jennifer Rohn, who was our first ever PubSci speaker from way back in 2011. This time she will be talking about Boffins, Beards, and B-Movies: An illustrated story of science stereotypes from Socrates to Sci-fi – an exploration of the portrayal of scientists in fiction.
Jenny is a molecular cell biologist at UCL and author of three science-based novels. She coined the term Lab Lit to describe her writing, now a popular genre worldwide, and founded Lablit.com in 2005. She is a regular contributor to the Guardian.
Join us upstairs at the Old King’s Head, near London Bridge station. Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start and as usual the event is free, but we will have a whip-round to cover costs. Jenny will also be signing books on the night. We hope to see you there!
