We’ll be doing some more Improbable Dramatic Readings — brief public readings from bizarre — yet genuine — scientific studies, this Friday night, September 26, at Porter Square Books, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, starting at 7:00 pm.
The guest readers are:
Gary (pork-up-his-nose) Dryfoos (Majordomo at the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, and new Internet celebrity and press darling because of his photogenic demonstration, at the recent Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, of how and why doctors stuffed cured pork up a patient’s nose)
The studies are some of the studies I wrote about in my new book This Is Improbable Too.
Here’s video the WGBH Forum Network made of our most recent Improbable Dramatic Readings event. The readers that night were Robin Abrahams, Melissa Franklin (Harvard professor of physics, and frequent Ig Nobel performer), Corky White (Boston University professor of anthropology, and author of Cooking for Crowds and co-author of The Ig Nobel Cookbook, volume 1), and Gus Rancatore (proprietor of Toscanini’s Ice Cream,and co-author of The Ig Nobel Cookbook, volume 1)
