A Wonderful Day In DC

By Sheril Kirshenbaum | July 29, 2009 12:50 pm

Thanks to everyone for a warm welcome back to the District! Chis and I really enjoyed our lunch conversation with the bright and enthusiastic “New Voices” at Research!America.  This group of motivated young scientists certainly keeps us optimistic about the future!

Our book talk at Politics and Prose was terrific! There were some excellent and thought-provoking questions that followed from a great audience and we had fun meeting everyone afterward.  We were very honored to have Jonathan Moreno of the Center for American Progress and Mary Woolley of Research!America introduce us at the event–two individuals who already do so much to bridge the science-society divide and continue to inspire us. And special thanks to Zuska, Jason, Benjamin, Manil, Al, and so many other friends who joined us for the evening.  I only wish we had more time to spend together and it meant a great deal to see you there!

Throughout the day, we also did several interviews that we’ll link as they become available. And with that, posting will be light as we continue traveling…
