Did you ever wonder what a mathematician does all day?  Or what made someone decide to become a mathematician?  Or even, what a mathematician does for fun?  You may be surprised by some of the answers!  Join Steven Strogatz, MoMath's 2021–2022 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, as he brings diverse and talented guests to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.

In May, meet Talithia Williams.  Talithia is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College and author of the book Power in Numbers: The Rebel Women of Mathematics (Race Point Publishing, 2018).  She was also a host of the six-part PBS series NOVA Wonders in April 2018 and the narrator for the five-part PBS series NOVA Universe Revealed in November 2021.
