Connie Willis on NPR's Radio 360 This week

Connie Willis will be in New York on Tuesday, Nov 17th, to take part in a live recording of NPR's Studio 360 at the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. The show is sold out, but they supposedly will offer a live webcast on the website at 7 pm ET which will likely stay available. Once I have more details on when it will be broadcast on the radio and associated links for that, I will post them.

Their web site describes the show as:

On November 17, Studio 360 takes you where no audience has gone before: traveling through time. In this live show hosted by Kurt Andersen at WNYC's The Greene Space (taped for later broadcast), scientists and artists explain why time travel is more than an idle fantasy.

Astrophysicist David Goldberg (A User's Guide to the Universe) unravels the physics of time travel. Sci-fi writer Connie Willis tells us what to do if your journey through time goes awry. Simon Wells, the great-grandson of H.G., shares his obsession with the classic The Time Machine. Musical sensation Janelle Monae performs her 28th-century funk. And Mike Daisey drops by to give us advice from the future.

Studio 360's "Science & Creativity" explores the intersection of art and science. The series is supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
