Genius at Play: The Curious Mind of John Horton Conway

Siobhan Roberts, Institute for Advanced Study and John Conway, Princeton

December 7, 2016 · 6:00 pm7:30 pm EST · Labyrinth Books

For the paperback release of Genius at Play, Labyrinth books hosts a conversation about mathematics and storytelling between an author and her subject, himself a storyteller extraordinaire. An unabashed original, Princeton professor John Horton Conway is Archimedes, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and Richard Feynman all rolled into one–a singular mathematician, with a rock star’s charisma, a sly sense of humor, a polymath’s promiscuous curiosity, and a burning desire to explain everything about the world to everyone in it.
