Kathryn Harkup at 6th ŚFN KATOWICE

Another special guest at the sixth edition of the Silesian Science Festival KATOWICE will be Kathryn Harkup — a science communicator, chemist, writer and... vampirologist.

Kathryn Harkup got her PhD studying her favourite chemical — phosphine, only to realise at the stage of further post-doctoral research that her calling is to write and give public lectures on the ‘disgusting and dangerous side of science’.

Her first book, A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie, became an international bestseller and was nominated for Mystery Readers International Macavity Award and BMA Book Award. She is also the author of Making the Monster: The Science of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Death by Shakespeare: Snakebites, Stabbings and Broken Hearts, The Secret Lives of the Elements, Vampirology: The Science of Horror’s Most Famous Fiend, and Superspy Science: Science, Death and Tech in the World of James Bond.
