James Gleick

Nonfiction Keynote

James Gleick is a bestselling science writer who served for ten years as a reporter and editor for the New York Times. His first book, Chaos, was a National Book Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist and inspired Nature’s Chaos, a collaboration with photographer Eliot Porter, and Chaos: The Software, created with developers at Autodesk. He is also the author of Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood, a “tour de force” which won the 2013 PEN/E.O. WIlson Literary Science Writing Award, and the bestselling biographies Isaac Newton and Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman, both shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize. His books have been translated into thirty languages. Time Travel, his latest work, is a “mind-bending” exploration of the origins, evolution, and influence of time travel as a concept in both popular culture and modern physics.
