Navigating Early
by Clare Vanderpool

Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies

Sunday, May 12
4:30 pm to 5:30 pm



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 Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool.

Early Auden is the “strangest of boys,” a savant who sweeps 13-year-old Jack Baker onto the Kennebec River and into an adventure rife with pirates, a volcano, a great white whale, a hundred-year-old woman, a lost hero, a hidden cave, a great Appalachian bear, and a timber rattlesnake.  For Early, the number pi tells a quest story that seems to play out as the boys walk their own path.

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