Science Guy Bill Nye to Sign Books at Flintridge Bookstore Sept. 14

Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse will welcome Bill Nye the Science Guy and co-author Gregory Mone for a presentation and signing of “In the Deep Blue Sea, Book 2” in their New York Times best-selling “Jack and the Geniuses” series (for readers grades 3-7). The event will take place Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m.
This is a ticketed event. A pre-ordered book purchase provides an entry ticket for one person. When guests buy a book, $5 entry tickets are available for up to three additional people. Orders can be placed over the phone, but tickets must be picked up by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14.
The “Jack and the Geniuses” series combines real-world science along with a mysterious adventure that will leave kids guessing until the end.
In the second installment, Jack, his genius siblings Ava and Matt, and inventor Dr. Hank Witherspoon travel to the Hawaiian island home of Ashley Hawking, a technology billionaire. Hawking and engineer Rosa Morris have built a revolutionary electricity plant that harvests energy from the deep ocean, but someone has been sabotaging the project.
In their search for the culprit, Jack and crew navigate an unusual world of characters and suspects, including Hawking and her obnoxiously intelligent son, Steven; a family of surfers who accuse the billionaire of trespassing on sacred land; an ex–Navy SEAL with a fondness for cat photos; and a cigar-chomping man who calls himself the Air-Conditioning King of Hawaii.
Readers will learn about the mysteries of the deep ocean, the scientific process, and the potential of green energy as Jack and his brilliant siblings use all their brainpower to survive. Integrating real science facts with humor and suspense and featuring a multiethnic cast of boy and girl characters, this engaging series is an irresistible combination for middle-grade readers.
The book includes information about the science discussed and used to solve the mystery, as well as a cool project that kids can do at home or in the classroom.
