Join us for a Darwin Day program: THE PUZZLE OF MAZEL

with Prof. Jeffrey S. Rosenthal speaking on his new book
“Knock on Wood: Luck, Chance, and the Meaning of Everything”

Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, author of the bestseller Struck by Lightning: The Curious World of Probabilities, was born on a Friday the thirteenth, a fact that he discovered long after he had become one of the world’s pre-eminent statisticians. Had he been living ignorantly and innocently under an unlucky cloud for all those years? Or is thirteen just another number?

In Knock on Wood, Rosenthal, with great humour and irreverence, divines the world of luck, fate and chance, including such notions as fate/destiny/ karma/superstition and more, putting his considerable scientific acumen to the test in deducing whether luck is real or the mere stuff of superstition.

Copies of the book will be available at $30.
Non-members welcome: $15
