Unlocking the Universe with Lucy Hawking
Queenswood School in partnership with Chorleywood Bookshop
We are delighted to announce that Lucy Hawking, daughter of the theoretical physicist Professor Stephen Hawking, will visit Queenswood School’s Clarissa Farr Theatre on the evening of Thursday 7 May 2020 – 7.15pm.
She will be talking about Unlocking the Universe, the last book that she worked on with her father before his death in March 2018. Tickets are £15 for adults, £10 for children (18 and under), and can be purchased from the Queenswood Box Office.
Unlocking the Universe is the ultimate non-fiction compendium for readers of ages nine and up. The book draws together fascinating real-life facts and insights from leading scientists including Professor Hawking himself. There is also brand new content from key scientific figures including essays on genetics, the rejection of scientific data, the multiverse, black holes, the ethics of AI and climate change. It’s a bumper compendium, brimming with a breadth of incredible information: the ultimate handbook for every young scientist. Copies of the book will be available for purchase on the night.
