Exploring the Wisconsin Science Festival: Radioactive READing

September 19, 2012
Art meets science, history, and a giant badger in the new READ poster.

The Wisconsin Science Festival opens September 27-30 at venues across the state. To celebrate, we’re highlighting a couple of university library-related events and exhibitors with a special series called Exploring the Wisconsin Science Festival.

The background in the new Bucky READ poster might look pretty familiar, particularly if you’ve been paging through Radioactive by Lauren Redniss, this year’s Go Big Read title.

Dying to snag one of these posters for your dorm room, office, or classroom? Send a note to bucky@library.wisc.edu or stop by the Ask-a-Science Librarian table at next week’s Wisconsin Science Festival.

Posters come in two sizes:


If you contact us by email to get a poster, please specify the size you would like.
