David S. Richards, a professor of physics at Penn College, will discuss Alan Lightman’s “Einstein’s Dreams” during an on-campus reprise of his recent James V. Brown Book Review Luncheon at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Mountain Laurel Room of the Thompson Professional Development Center. The international best-seller is a fictional collage of stories dreamed by Einstein in 1905, when he worked in a Swiss patent office. The author explores how the lives of ordinary people in Switzerland would be changed in the various realities of time imagined by Einstein as he develops his theory of relativity. Richards’ review offers a timely introduction to Lightman – a theoretical physicist, educator, novelist and essayist – the next speaker in the college’s Centennial Colloquia Series at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium.
