October 13, 2009 -- 4:00 p.m.
An event to celebrate creative writing in mathematics and science

Fields Institute,
222 College Street

You are invited to an event to celebrate creative writing in mathematics and science and the publication of "The Shape of Content", edited by Chandler Davis, Marjorie Wikler Senechal and Jan Zwicky.

Creative writing about the content of mathematics and science is rare, and creative writing about the activity of mathematics and scientific creation is even rarer. This book arose from a unique and remarkable endeavor with practitioners who engage this content in their work.

We hope that graduate students, postdoctoral fellows or other academics who would be interested will attend this event extolling creative writing on mathematics and science by thinkers, artists and academics.All creative thinkers welcome! FREE EVENT
