What do cane toads, placebos and Mungo Man all have in common?

They have all captured the imaginations of some of Australia's finest science writers. 

Come along to Gleebooks tonight to hear New Scientist reporter Michael Slezak, journalist and NSW Writers Centre director Jane McCredie, and Australian Geographic editor John Pickrell talk with anthology editor Bianca Nogrady about the stories that earned them a place in this year's The Best Australian Science Writing anthology, what they love about science writing, and their quirkiest tales and most eye-boggling encounters.

Where: Gleebooks, 49 Glebe Point Road, Glebe

Tickets: https://gleebooks.worldsecuresystems.com/BookingRetrieve.aspx?ID=240826

Why: Because how else are you going to get this much science writing firepower in one place for the bargain price of $12?
