Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions
by Edwin A. Abbott

Sunday, November 22 at 5:30 pm ET (New York)

This masterpiece of science (and mathematical) fiction is a delightfully unique and highly entertaining satire that has charmed readers for over 100 years.  Flatland describes the journeys of A Square, a mathematician and resident of two-dimensional Flatland, where the social status of shapes depends upon the number of sides they have.  The Square’s travels take him to Lineland, a one-dimensional world inhabited by points that cannot accept the Square for who he truly is.  The Square then explores other worlds that open his mind to multiple dimensions of space.  Join Tween Primes to discuss this book and talk about ways that we too can see beyond the dimensions of our physical world.
