Randall Munroe, New York Times bestselling author of What If? will be in conversation about his new hardcover, How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems. For any task you might want to do, there’s a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally complex, excessive, and inadvisable that no one would ever try it. How To is a guide to the third kind of approach, offering a delightfully mind-bending way to better understand the science and technology underlying the things we do every day.

A Rainy Day Books Author Event co-sponsored by the Linda Hall Library.
