NHM Virtual Bookclub – Uncle Petros & Goldbach’s Conjecture
May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us at NHM Virtual Book Club, facilitated by our Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis & our Manager of Programs & Events Cairo Dye. Each month the NHM Book Club chooses a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a Greek American author (and sometimes both!). Then we gather to discuss the book on Zoom.
Book Club is free to join and meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm CST
On May 20th we will be discussing Uncle Petros & Goldbach’s Conjecture by Apostolos Doxiadis
This international bestseller, translated into English by the author, tells the story of Petros Papachristos, a mathematical prodigy, who has devoted his life to proving one of the greatest mathematical challenges of all time: Goldbach’s Conjecture. He now enters old age having seemingly accomplished nothing and is viewed with shame by his family. That is until his nephew, an ambitious young man in his own right, intervenes. The nephew’s decision to help his uncle takes him, and the reader, on a fascinating voyage through the world of genius.
