Richard Feynman’s Birthday… and Comics!

by Alex Wellerstein, published May 3rd, 2012

Just a brief announcement: if you're in the Washington, DC area and are interested in history of science and/or comic books, we're having a cool event at my workplace on Friday, May 11, 2012, starting at 6:30pm.

In celebration of Richard Feynman’s birthday — and because we were looking for an excuse — the Center for History of Physics at the American Institute of Physics is happy to host a talk, discussion, reception, and book-signing with Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick, the writer/artist team behind the smash graphic novel biography FEYNMAN (New York: First Second, 2011). You are invited for an evening of history of science fun, here at the American Center for Physics. Admittance is free!

Here's the link for more information and the RSVP form (which is not mandatory but is helpful to us). It's open to the general public, all are invited. There will be food. AIP is an easy walk from the College Park metro station, on the Green line. Please feel free to forward this on to any geeky friends.

    Jim Ottaviani is amazing. He writes history! of science! comics! Such as a biography of Niels Bohr and a book about the Oppenheimer affair, Fallout.

    Be sure to chat with him. You will have much in common to discuss. (Perhaps you know him already?)

  2. […] just a reminder, if you’re in the Washington, DC, metro area, AIP has its FEYNMAN graphic novel event tomorrow (Friday). All are welcome! […]

  3. Read his bio. An excellent human being. Wish I could have met him.
