The Alchemy of Us: How Technology Shaped Us

May 17, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Alchemy of Us: How Technology Shaped Us

As part of the Anne E. Eyes Science Lecture Series at the library, scientist and science writer, Ainissa Ramirez, Ph.D., discusses her new book The Alchemy of Us, which won the CT Book Award and was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize.  The book unfolds how simple inventions shaped society. Ramirez will illuminate how everyday objects around us had a hand in changing language, politics, and even our bodies.

In 2012, Ray Eyes established the Anne E. Eyes Science Lecture at the Westport Library in honor of his wife, who was a researcher at Hall-Brooke and Silver Hill. 

Always free and open to the public, the Anne E. Eyes Science Lecture has become a highly anticipated educational experience for this community and has featured paragons in their fields including, Astrophysicist Brooke D. Simmons, Science writer David Pogue, Carl Zimmer of The New York Times, astronomer Caleb Scharf and, now, scientist and science writer, Ainissa Ramirez.
