We are incredibly excited to welcome comedian Robin Ince to St Helens Book Stop on the afternoon of Friday 8th October 2021 at 4pm.
Ince is the co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage alongside Brian Cox.
His latest publication, The Importance of Being Interested – Adventures in Scientific Curiosity, will be available to purchase at this event.
In this erudite and witty book, 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, this optimistic and profound book will leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.
The event will be one of the first in Robin’s #100Bookshops tour of the UK and will be taking place the day after publication. Be one of the first to grab your copy and get it signed by the man himself.
