Robin Ince: The Importance of Being Interested

February 25 - 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

To celebrate the publication of Robin’s new book, The Importance of Being Interested: Adventures in Scientific Curiosity, the award-winning comedian is setting out on a tour of talks and book-signings at 100 independent bookshops around the UK.

And now it’s our turn! Robin will be coming to the shop on evening of Friday February 25th for an intimate show…

Here’s a description of the book — this should give you a taster of what’s in store at the event…

“Comedian Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. But, twenty years later, he fell in love — and he now presents one of the world’s most popular science podcasts (The Infinite Monkey Cage, with Brian Cox. Every year, he meets hundreds of the world’s greatest thinkers.

In his erudite and witty book [and on this tour!], Robin reveals why scientific wonder isn’t just for the professionals. Filled with interviews featuring astronauts, comedians, teachers, quantum physicists, neuroscientists and more –- as well as charting Robin’s own journey with science -– The Importance of Being Interested explores why many wrongly think of the discipline as distant and difficult. From the glorious appeal of the stars above to why scientific curiosity can encourage much needed intellectual humility, Robin’s optimistic and profound perspective will leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure!”
