Hollingsworth headshot 2016.JPGKnox County Public Library invites the public to join Brandon Hollingsworth for a discussion of All These Worlds Are Yours:The Scientific Search for Alien Life by Jon Willis, Wednesday, October 18, noon to 1:00 in the East Tennessee History Center auditorium. Books Sandwiched In is sponsored by the Friends of Knox County Public Library. Reading the book is optional. Attendees may bring lunch. Drinks are available to purchase.

"Once considered a fringe field, what we now call astrobiology is a credible scientific avenue for testing what we know—or think we know—about biology, cosmology and philosophy. In All These World Are Yours, Jon Willis traces the development of astrobiology and asks the reader to consider the possibilities and probabilities of life beyond our own world."
