From University of Wisconsin news release:
“Author and science journalist David Dobbs will visit the UW-Madison campus the week of Nov. 4 as the 2012 Fall Science Writer in Residence.
Dobbs is the author of the recent Atavist best seller, “My Mother’s Lover,” and contributes features and essays for The Atlantic, National Geographic, Nature, The New York Times Magazine, and other publications.”
Dobbs writes in his “Neuron Culture” blog:
Tuesday, Nov 6 at 4 pm, Memorial Union: Working the Mystery: How to Write Real about Genes, Mind, Science, and Culture. That’s election day. I’m hoping for a strong turnout.
Friday, Nov 9 at 3 pm, Vilas Hall, Nafziger Room, 5th Floor: Writing with Zeppelin & Schubert on Your Shoulder: Musical Models for Longform Structure, which is probably the funnest talk I give.
Please see Council for Wisconsin Writers website at http://www.wiswriters.org for information about the 2012 CWW contests, which opened for entries on Nov. 1.
