Final week I used to be delighted to get one other name from the workers there, this time alerting me that each one of you possibly can attend the digital model of the awards occasion, free, on March 10 from 4:30 to six PM Jap. I can be there in individual, giving a speech (uh-oh!) and making an attempt to recollect how one can behave in public.

Appears like one thing we undoubtedly imagine in, sure?

Hope to “see you” March 10. Right here’s the hyperlink without spending a dime digital tickets, and the general web page in regards to the award. The previous Scott Medal recipients record is right here.
