Immensely popular UK top ten selling author Terry Pratchett is going to be seeing a lot of the University of Warwick in the next few weeks. Not only is he receiving an honorary degree from the University in July, but on Friday 4 June he will make a special trip to the University to launch a new book entitled The Science of Discworld written by him in partnership with Professor Ian Stewart a University of Warwick mathematician, and Dr Jack Cohen a Warwick biologist. Terry will launch the book at a special open air talk in the University's Rootes Piazza at 12.30pm on Friday 4 June. This will be followed by a signing session in the University's bookshop.

However, he will also use the open air event to launch MAC@W, a University of Warwick based national centre to promote public awareness of mathematics in all its guises run by Professor lan Stewart and Dr Jack Cohen.

Later that week Jack and lan will start MAC@W's work with a special series of fun popular science lectures for school pupils, or interested adults, drawing from the Science of Discworld book. The lectures will run on 9, 16, 23 and 30 June 1999.
