Durham’s science cafe, Periodic Tables, is back in business after a summer hiatus.
The 2017-18 season kicks off with highly entertaining Duke Biologist Sönke Johnsen, who took a crooked path to becoming a scientist studying light, vision and camouflage in deep sea creatures. Come for the amazing photos, stay for the laughs.
7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 19 at MotorCo’s Music Hall on Riggsbee in Durham. $5 cover.
