When: Thu., March 5, 7-8:30 p.m. 2015
Ready to charge the world with rock 'n' roll and atomic principles, author Christine McKinley will be at Rediscovered Books discussing both her new book, Physics for Rock Stars, and the ways in which the understanding of physics can make a person "better at everything." The Portland, Ore.-based author is also an avid musician and engineer who combines her talents to explain both the complexity and practicality of physics and, hopefully, "help even the most unscientific love and understand the laws of motion and energy." The multi-faceted McKinley is also the co-host of Brad Meltzer's Decoded, a History Channel series about symbols and codes. McKinley's Boise appearance promises to be edu-taining as she lets her physics-freak flag fly through excerpts from her book and songs about things like ionic bonds and arson.
