The New Yorker Festival
Nathan Myhrvold joins writer Michael Specter of The New Yorker for an in-depth conversation about the art and science of breaking bread. In addition, Myhrvold will lead an exclusive demo from Modernist Bread that includes a bread tasting. The audience will be among the first to sample a recipe from his new book.
Michael Specter has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1998. His writing often focusses on science and issues of global public health. His 2009 book, “Denialism: How Irrational Thinking Hinders Scientific Progress, Harms the Planet, and Threatens Our Lives,” received the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry’s Robert P. Balles Annual Prize in Critical Thinking. He is currently working on a book about CRISPR and other new gene-editing technologies.
