Royal Society Science Book Prize

Join us at Manchester Central Library for a live screening from the British Library celebrating science writing past, present and future. There will be a panel discussion beamed from the British Library chaired by Dara O’Briain and including Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Vivienne Parry and Professor Mark Miodownik – with your chance to put questions to the panel via Twitter.

There will also be a once in a lifetime opportunity to examine some of the most revolutionary scientific books from Manchester Central Libraries collections including first and rare editions of works by Newton, Vesalius, John Dalton and Galileo amongst others.

The event is free but places are limited. Please book below to reserve a place.
