On Wednesday, January 13th, we hosted Bill Sargent ’65 in the first of the Nobles Author Talks this winter. Bill shared a presentation on his most recent book: Terror by Error? The Covid Chronicles, where he takes a look at the history of vaccines and contagious diseases. After his presentation, he led the group in a lively conversation, answering questions about ticks, horseshoe crab blood, and theories of the origins of Covid-19. Thanks to everyone who attended!

Bill is a former NOVA consultant and the author of 27 books on science and the environment. He studied plankton as a research assistant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and was the first director of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. He has taught Science Writing at Harvard and Marine Biology at the Briarwood Field Station in Bourne.
