The University College and its Common Reading Program invited you to attend the 2011-12 program’s annual invited lecture set for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 27, in Beasley Coliseum.

UC-Berkeley physicist Richard A. Muller, author of this year’s text, “Physics for Future Presidents,” is the speaker. His book is based on a course he teaches to non-science students at Berkeley.

Muller is also faculty senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory associated with the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics, and is a frequent guest on broadcast media, writes for popular magazines, and has authored several books.

This is the fifth Common Reading Invited Lecture in as many years.

In addition to the annual presentation, a popular weekly lecture series—Common Reading Tuesdays—features faculty and other experts on topics related to the text.

Through the series in fall and spring semesters this year, WSU students will experience “science” from the unique perspectives of economists, political scientists, nanotechnologists, librarians, engineers, philosophers, historians, sociologists, and writers.
