If you’re in London this weekend and have some time, this might appeal:
“Join us to celebrate 350 years of the Royal Society’s library at the One Culture festival. Over the first weekend in October 2011 some of the best novelists, scientists, poets and historians will explore the crosscurrents between science and culture.”
The festival will be held at the Royal Society in central London. October 1-2 and tickets required (not a free event).
