It sounds like an interesting talk tonight at Town Hall Seattle.
Not sure if I can make it, but would like to. Anyone else going?

Carol Yoon is talking about her book 'Naming Nature'
Excerpt from book review:
"Taxonomy may not seem like a subject for the non-scientist, but as Carol Yoon makes clear in this original, delightful, and wise book, it is precisely what we need to know to understand ourselves and our world."

Just so you know, I'm getting nothing about this event either on her web site or the town hall one.

There was something on the town hall site yesterday, but now that it is over, they must update. I have the town hall science lecture flier with the info.
She spoke on KUOW yesterday Tuesday Sept 15, from 9:30 to 10 but I can't find that on their site either.

I did not get to the talk, so will have to look for the book.

Here is a link that might be useful: science lectures

Here's a link to her interview on KUOW. The first part contains a phone interview with Sandra Day O'Connor. Then Yoon comes on.
