Leonard Mlodinow in Conversation With Rob Paulsen

September 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

One of the most influential physicists of our time, Stephen Hawking touched the lives of millions. Recalling his nearly two decades as Hawking’s collaborator and friend, Leonard Mlodinow, author of Subliminal and The Drunkard’s Walk, brings this complex man into focus in a unique and deeply personal portrayal. We meet Hawking the genius, who ours his mind into uncovering the mysteries of the universe — ultimately formulating a pathbreaking theory of black holes that reignites the discipline of cosmology and paves the way for physicists to investigate the origins of the universe in completely new ways. We meet Hawking the colleague, a man whose illness leaves him able to communicate at only six words per minute but who expends the effort to punctuate his conversations with humor. And we meet Hawking the friend, who can convey volumes with a frown, a smile, or simply a raised eyebrow. In his new book, Stephen Hawking: A Memoir of Friendship and Physics (Pantheon), Mlodinow puts us in the room as Hawking indulges his passion for wine and curry; shares his feelings on love, death, and disability; and grapples with deep questions of philosophy and physics. This deeply affecting account of a friendship teaches us not just about the nature and practice of physics, but also about life and the human capacity to overcome daunting obstacles. Mlodinow will be joined in conversation by voice actor Rob Paulsen.
