Tuesday, February 28, 2017 – 6:00 pm Tickets: FREE Join us for a lecture by Jonathan White, author of Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean. In the book, Jonathan takes readers on a journey spanning the globe as he examines the many dimensions of the tides, the science behind them, and how they influence culture. Jonathan’s twenty years of research took him to five continents where he saw the largest, fastest, scariest, and most amazing tides in the world. With Lukasi Nappaaluk, an Inuit elder, he slithered through a hole in the arctic ice and gathered mussels in the dark cavities left behind by a dropping tide. In China, he witnessed the world’s largest tidal bore, a 25-foot wave that charges up an eighty-mile river at twenty miles an hour. At Mont St. Michel in France, he learned how the monks are inspired by the tide. And at the Royal Society of London, he researched how Plato and Aristotle, Leonardo de Vinci, Newton, Descartes, and many other noted thinkers had been captivated – and befuddled! – by the science of the tides. Listen to Jonathan’s tales of adventure and education and ask questions to one of the leading experts on tidal behavior and lore.
