Mathemalchemy: A Comic Book Adventure in Math and Art
Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies
featuring Jay and Max Hosler
Sunday, September 10 at 4:00 pm ET
Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies, MoMath’s 2023–2024 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, this month’s Tween Primes, will feature the comic book Mathemalchemy: A Comic Book Adventure in Math and Art. Ingrid will be joined by two special guests: authors Jay and Max Hosler.
Jay Hosler is a professor of biology at Juniata College and a cartoonist who has written and drawn several comics and graphic novels about science. Max Hosler has a degree in mathematics from the College of Wooster and has spent his life trying to explain math to his father, Jay. This comic book is evidence that some of that work has paid off!
All are welcome to attend the book club discussion. For the fullest experience, participants are encouraged to read the book in advance of the event.
