Feature: Lucy Hawking - science writer for young readers

From Nine To Noon, 10:09 am on 6 June 2014

British journalist and novelist Lucy Hawking and her father, the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, have written four novels together based on science for a young readership. The books introduce scientific concepts such as black holes and DNA, and explain them in easily accessible mini-essays written by Stephen Hawking and other leading academics. The latest has just been released, called 'George and the Unbreakable Code'.
