Join the Institute in celebrating the publication of Maker of Patterns: An Autobiography through Letters by Freeman Dyson, Professor Emeritus in the School of Natural Sciences. The work is a collection of Dyson’s letters to relatives, written between 1940 and the early 1980s, and features the Institute, past Director J. Robert Oppenheimer, Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, and others engaged in solving the quandaries of twentieth-century physics.

The program begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 13, in Wolfensohn Hall, with a brief reading followed by a conversation between Freeman Dyson and IAS Director and Leon Levy Professor Robbert Dijkgraaf.
