The Roundhouse: An Experiment In Idea Exchange

Artist Talk

The Roundhouse: An Experiment In Idea Exchange

FREE to the public.

Three writers from across the bridge talk about blood feuds, games, personality, plasticity, and play. Not your usual author talk. Three writers share their topics, look  for common threads, then open it to audience participation.


Alex Irvine has written maybe twenty books, as well as a couple of games, a number of comics and a whole bunch of articles. In previous lives he was a professor at the University of Maine and a staff writer for the Phoenix.

Science writer Hannah Holmes' most recent book is QUIRK, a study of personality in mouse and man. She contributes to National Geographic and other magazines, and blogs at

Writer Michael Erard's most recent book is Babel No More: The Search for the World's Most Extraordinary Language Learners. He is a contributing writer for The Morning News and also blogs at Psychology Today.
