Dec 14 - Colm Mulcahy - The Legacy of Martin Gardner, Skeptic Supreme

Join us for personal reminiscences and survey of the legacy of puzzle expert and rationality champion Martin Gardner (1914-2010) who wrote the book "Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science" over sixty years ago and later played a major role in the founding of CSICOP and Skeptical Inquirer.

Colm Mulcahy is professor of mathematics at Spelman College, Atlanta, GA. He is on leave for the academic year 2013-14, visiting The American University.  He's blogged for the Mathematical Association of America, Aperiodical, Huffington Post and Scientific American.  He recently published Mathematical Card Magic (380 pages, AK Peters/CRC Press). He was fortunate to know Martin Gardner for the last decade of his life.  His website it and he tweets at @CardColm.   Gardner fans can follow @WWMGT (
