Bill Nye 

When: Fri., Nov. 20, 6:15 p.m. 2015


THE BARN AT FEARRINGTON—It's been more than 20 years since Bill Nye hit American TV screens with his funny, sharp science program for pre-teens. Though the show Bill Nye the Science Guy only stayed on the air for five years, the man who'll forever be known by that title has stuck around in syndication and classrooms for much longer, leaving a lasting impression on Millennials. These days, Nye's biggest cause is climate change—he appears regularly as a talking head on cable programs in vehement disagreement with the deniers. His new book, Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World, carries on his mission to promote activism, protect the planet and encourage curiosity and learning. The purchase of Unstoppable from McIntyre's Books admits two people to the talk and signing. 6:30 p.m., $28.81 (price of book), 2000 Fearrington Village Center, Pittsboro, 919-542-3030, —Allison Hussey
