All ages welcome to hear science fiction authors and KU professors, James Gunn, Chris McKitterick, and experimental particle physicist Philip Baringer discuss the marriage of science and technology throughout the history of the science fiction genre.
How does technology inspire authors to create new realities, and how does science fiction inspire scientists to take their vision one step further? We’ll be distributing copies of Andy Weir’s The Martian, so be there, and by all means, be square.

The first 200 children ages K–12 (and their families) can come eat with us on Monday.
At 12 pm, a free lunch will be served compliments of Jimmy John’s, with fruits and veggies donated by The Merc.
Because USD 497 does not have school on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, children who rely on free and reduced lunch may not otherwise have an afternoon meal.
