Shawn Lawrence Otto is a science activist and two-time Minnesota Book Award winner. His nonfiction debut, Fool Me Twice: Fighting the Assault on Science in America (2012), is a meticulously researched exposé on the growing anti-science movement – a book that “every voter in the country should read it,” according to MinnPost. Otto’s provocative 2016 follow-up, The War on Science: Who’s Waging It, Why It Matters, What We Can Do About It, is “an essential work, a game changer, and probably the most important book you’ll read this year,” lauds ScienceBlogs™. Otto is a co-founder of Science Debate, a grassroots movement dedicated to ensuring that candidates for public office address hot-button science and technology issues. He is a regular contributor to Huffington Post, Salon, Scientific American, and other outlets. In addition to his advocacy work, Shawn Otto has penned a well-received novel, Sins of Our Fathers (2014), and wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-nominated film House of Sand and Fog.

A podcast of Otto’s Club Book discussion will be available a few days after the event!
