Darwin's Microscope

On 9th March the Group organised its first event: Kelley Swain read from her new book of poems, Darwin's Microscope, to great success. A discussion following the poetry-reading gave attendees an opportunity to quiz Kelley on her approach to science and literature, to writing poetry, to works from the history of science, to Charles Darwin himself, and to addressing her work to varied audiences.

Many thanks to Kelley, to Jim Secord, and to Christ's College for all their help! We look forward to organising other events in the near future.
