Come join us for November’s Science Speaks! book signing and presentation hosted by the NYC DOE STEM Department and the National Archives at NYC. Kathleen McAuliffe, an award-wining science writer, will talk about her book, This Is Your Brain on Parasites: How Tiny Creatures Manipulate Our Behavior and Shape Society. Ms. McAuliffe’s work has appeared in Best America Science and Nature Writing and over a dozen national magazines, including The New York Times Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Discover and Smithsonian. Her 2012 Atlantic feature “How Your Cat is Making You Crazy” became the second-most widely read article in the magazine’s history. She was educated at Trinity College Dublin, in Ireland, where she obtained a M.A. in natural science after graduating with first class honors. This talk is relevant to teachers of all grade levels. All participants will receive a free copy of This Is Your Brain on Parasites: How Tiny Creatures Manipulate Our Behavior and Shape Society.
