Literature in Focus - Graviton 1992-2009

The CERN Library invites you to attend its next “Literature in Focus” event, which will take place at 4.00 p.m. on Tuesday, 1st December.

The Graviton was created in 1992 on the initiative of a group of members of the personnel, as a platform for CERN employees to have their say and also to provide more information on the various activities of the Organization and other centres of research. Over the years numerous members of the personnel have contributed to the Graviton’s interviews and articles. Many of these articles have now been brought together in a collection edited by Franco Francia. Published in English and French, this book is a perfect opportunity to look back at some of the highlights of CERN’s history.

Franco Francia will present the collection in the CERN Library
(Bldg. 52 1-052) at 4.00 p.m. on 1st December.

Tea and coffee will be served.
