Love mathematics and books?  Looking for a stimulating and fun discussion? Volumes, the MoMath book club, is just the thing for you. This reading group is designed especially for those interested in mathematics and science and how it affects our lives. No prior math or science background is necessary.

Join MoMath for coffee, cookies, and a discussion of Logicomix: An epic search for truth by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou.

This exceptional graphic novel recounts the spiritual odyssey of philosopher Bertrand Russell. In his agonized search for absolute truth, Russell crosses paths with legendary thinkers like Gottlob Frege, David Hilbert, and Kurt Gödel and finds a passionate student in the great Ludwig Wittgenstein. But his most ambitious goal — to establish unshakable logical foundations of mathematics — continues to loom before him. Through love and hate, peace and war, Russell persists in the dogged mission that threatens to claim both his career and his personal happiness, finally driving him to the brink of insanity.
