As the host of his own eponymous news talk shows on PBS and Public Radio International, Tavis Smiley's face and authoritative voice are well-known. He's also the author of the new book Death of a King, which chronicles the trials and tribulations Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. faced during the year before his April 1968 assassination. Smiley joins retired Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge LaDoris H. Cordell for a discussion about Dr. King's final days. They'll highlight his leadership and perseverance in the face of assaults on his character and ideology. After their conversation, Smiley will be available for book-signing. Learn More

Marcus described his new book covering people engaged in do it yourself development of dna manipulation. Stunning and very well presented to a full house. So good I wrote a review of it for his book on Amazon that night! This is an important issue and he is a trusted AP journalist telling us what is happening.
Quotes & Highlights
Check out Marcus Wohlsen’s blog.
The most revolutionary discoveries often emerge from out-of-the-way places, forged by brilliant outsiders with few resources besides boundless energy and great ideas. That language could apply to the “biohacking” movement. In the next few years, companies will start selling libraries of genetic LEGOs that amateur scientists will use to build new life from scratch. Wohlsen follows the biopunk underground toward a future that might leave us feeling blessed, doomed or both.
