The Triangle Science Book Club meets every second Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble at New Hope Commons in Durham, says group member Mike Conrad.
Tell us about your club. We have great conversations about the science book of the month, science, and everything else. You don’t even have to read the book; just come by and have fun. We have about 40 members on our mailing list, with usually about 10 attending each meeting.
What are you reading now? “The Excruciating History of Dentistry: Toothsome Tales & Oral Oddities from Babylon to Braces” by James Wynbrandt
What is your club’s favorite book? “My Beloved Brontosaurus: On the Road with Old Bones, New Science, and Our Favorite Dinosaurs” by Brian Switek. The author was fascinated by dinosaurs at age 5 and continues his dinosaur phase into adulthood, writing about his favorite dinosaur.
What’s unique about your club? There is a Yahoo group where you can see book suggestions and discussions back through the years.
