Westport’s David Pogue to host ‘Making More Stuff’ screening

On Oct. 16, New York Times technology writer David Pogue will have the fun of seeing his latest PBS NOVA series hit the small screen. If you happen to be in Westport that night, you can join him.

Pogue will mark the debut “Making More Stuff,” at the Westport Public Library where he will host the premiere at the Library’s McManus Room. The event, which is free, will stretch from 8:15 to 10:30 p.m. in the library’s McManus Room.

Pogue, a Westport resident, is expected to talk about the series, which will run on PBS stations for four Wednesdays, at 9 p.m., Oct. 16, 23, and 30 and Nov. 6, 2013.

The show is described as such on the NOVA website:

In this four-part special, New York Times technology correspondent and best-selling author David Pogue takes a wild ride through the cutting-edge science that is powering a next wave of technological innovation. Pogue meets the scientists and engineers who are plunging to the bottom of the temperature scale, finding design inspiration in nature, and breaking every speed limit to make tomorrow’s “stuff” “Colder,” “Faster,” “Safer,” and “Wilder.”

If such a ride still leaves you with questions, Pogue intends to stick around after the screening to answer them. Those who are interested in attending are asked to register online. For more information, call 203-291-4800.
