Natalie Angier writes about biology for the New York Times, for which she has won a Pulitzer Prize and other honors. She is the author of the bestseller Woman: An Intimate Geography, named one of the top books of the year by the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, People, National Public Radio, Village Voice, and Publishers Weekly. Angier has contributed the foreword to Full Body Project, the recently published book of photographs by actor, author, and photographer Leonard Nimoy. Nimoy’s photos have been exhibited in venues ranging from The Art Institute of Chicago to the Museum of Modern Art in Spyros, Greece. His work is also included in prestigious public collections such as the Jewish Museum in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. 

Hammer Conversations

This ongoing series pairs creative thinkers from a range of disciplines for engaging, provocative discussions on culture, science, and the arts. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, Ann and Jerry Moss, and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee. Hammer lectures are supported in part, by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
