WE LOVE BOOKSTORES | Rebecca Skloot and Ed Yong for East Bay Booksellers

Hosted/Organized by: We Love Bookstores

 

Fundraising Goal: $2000

It’s a tough time for local bookstores, what with the social distancing and the sheltering in place. So we’re raising funds to help local Bay Area bookstores stay in business, with a series of fundraisers. This event will feature Rebecca Skloot and Ed Yong.

Rebecca Skloot is the author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which was made into an Emmy Nominated HBO film. Her award winning science writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine; O, The Oprah Magazine, and many other publications. She has worked as a correspondent for WNYC’s Radiolab and PBS’s Nova ScienceNOW. She and her father, Floyd Skloot, co-edited The Best American Science Writing 2011.

Ed Yong is a science journalist who reports for The Atlantic, and is based in Washington DC. His work appears several times a week on The Atlantic’s website, and has also featured in National Geographic, the New Yorker, Wired, Nature, New Scientist, Scientific American, and many more. He has won a variety of awards, including the Michael E. DeBakey Journalism Award for biomedical reporting in 2016 and the National Academies Keck Science Communication Award in 2010 for his old blog Not Exactly Rocket Science.

This event is hosted by Annalee Newitz.
