Are you a budding mathematician between the ages of 10 and 17 who loves reading?  Would you like to make new friends your age who share your passion for mathematics and literature?  Join us online for Tween Primes, the MoMath book club for tweens and teens. 

Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies, MoMath’s 2023–2024 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, this month’s Tween Primes will feature In the Red by Christopher Swiedler.

In the Red is a harrowing, pulse-pounding story about the race for survival on a future Mars.  Michael Prasad knows he shouldn’t go out on the Mars surface alone.  It’s dangerous.  His parents have forbidden it.  And the anxiety he feels almost every time he puts on a spacesuit makes it nearly impossible for him to leave the safety of the colony.  But when his best friend, Lilith, suggests they sneak out one night, he can’t resist the chance to prove everyone — including himself — wrong.  As the two ride along the Mars surface in a stolen rover, miles from the colony, a massive solar flare hits the planet, knocking out power, communication, and navigation systems, and the magnetic field that protects the planet from the sun’s deadly radiation.

This is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
