Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Jonathan Weiner will deliver the keynote presentation when the University Research Magazine Association’s annual conference comes to Binghamton University this month. His talk, scheduled for 4:20 p.m. Thursday, May 23, in UDC-220, is titled “Science and Storytelling.” Weiner will present seven lessons in the art and science of storytelling — stolen from masters old and new. His books include “The Beak of the Finch,” winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction and the Los Angeles Times
Book Prize for Science; “Time, Love, Memory,” winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for General Nonfiction; and “His Brother's Keeper,” finalist for the Los Angeles Times
Weiner has written for the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, the New Republic and many other publications. Since 2005, he has taught at Columbia University, where he is the Maxwell M. Geffen Professor of Medical and Scientific Journalism. His May 23 lecture, which is free and open to the campus community, will be followed by a book signing.
