Celebrating Science + Literature

Join the National Book Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and The Cooper Union for the 2023 Science + Literature Ceremony — celebrating the second cohort of Science + Literature selected titles: Dyke (geology), Real Life, and Blockchain Chicken Farm: And Other Stories of Tech in China’s Countryside. The program is free and open to the public and will feature readings and conversations with honored authors Sabrina Imbler, Brandon Taylor, and Xiaowei Wang. Moderated by Jennifer Baker, creator and host of the Minorities in Publishing podcast. Café con Libros will sell books at the program.

Science + Literature identifies three books annually to deepen readers’ understanding of science and technology with a focus on work that highlights the diversity of voices in scientific writing. The 2023 selected titles — all authored by queer writers of color—include a hybrid chapbook, a novel, and an essay collection. The 2023 selection committee is Ben Green, J. Drew Lanham, Latif Nasser, Aimee Nezhukumatathil (Chair), and Weike Wang. Science + Literature is made possible by the Sloan Foundation. Read more about the Science + Literature program on the National Book Foundation’s website.
