Australia’s most popular science writer and national treasure Dr Karl Kruszelnicki AM has sold more than 1.2 million books in Australia. In Dr Karl’s Random Road Trip Through Science, the living legend continues his admirable if ambitious 30+ year mission to track down all the awesome stories in and of the universe.
Why do wombats poo cubes? Do fish drink water? What nearly destroyed humanity on Halloween 2015? How do you use an incinerating toilet? Find out whether cannibalism is nutritious, how birds fly when they’re asleep and the Big Question – why does spaghetti always break into three parts?
Dr Karl will showcase content from his new-look, large-format full-colour new book Dr Karl’s Random Road Trip Through Science. It’s packed with scintillating stories as well as funny and clever illustrations.
Whether you’re ten or sixty-ten, strap in and get ready for a random ride through the universe. Who knows where you’ll end up?
The Library Shop will have Dr Karl’s Random Road Trip Through Science available for purchase at the event, and you are invited to meet Dr Karl post-event to have your book signed.
