Literature and science event at the Geological Society

Ask the Mountains Their Story: an evening of science and literature

On Friday 18th October the Geological Society of London celebrates different forms of writing that address geology, climate change and scientific discovery with an evening of talks and readings celebrating the links between science and literature. Marking the end of an Arts Council England funded project investigating geology and climate change, the evening will explore global warming, oil exploration, scientific discovery and the Anthropocene through science-writing, biography, fiction and poetry. Speakers include Bryan Lovell, Sarah Day, Barbara Cooke and Michael McKimm, and the event will be followed by a drinks reception.

The event is free and open to all, but please register by emailing:
