I have arrived in wonderful London, and under the nicest circumstances. THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS has been nominated for the WELLCOME PRIZE — an award honoring the best writing of the year on the subject of health, science and medicine.
This is pretty amazing, as SOAT is the only novel of the year to have been shortlisted. (Alma would be so pleased to know she had joined, at last, the ranks of serious scientific thinkers!)
I will be participating in two events while I'm here…
1) This Saturday afternoon, for free, in conversation at the Wellcome Center: https://bit.ly/QKrR6L
2) This Sunday afternoon, I'll be giving a talk at Wilton's, along with two of the other nominees:
The winner of The Wellcome Prize will be announced next week…wish Alma luck!
