Red Light Lit says
Red Light Lit is thrilled to come back to Portland! Our theme for the evening explores the magic of Quantum Entanglement. Listen to special guest, the 2016 Oregon Book Award finalist, Nick Jaina, read from his memoir "Get It While You Can" alongside Portland writer Nancy Rommelmann, San Francisco writer Allyson Darling, Portland performers Katt Cavallo and Chris Mancari with musical accompaniment by musician, songwriter and film composer, David Williams.

"Do you know about quantum entanglement? It's when you have two particles that have interacted in some special way (I can't figure out exactly what special way, because all the writing on this subject is by physicists and they speak about these things very unsentimentally.) But these particles interact somehow and effect each other so much that if you separate them, their movements continue to correlate to each other. You could be in Los Angeles with one of these particles and I could be in New York, and if your particle spins a certain way, my particle will spin that way too. And this connection happens instantaneously, which is to say that it's faster than the speed of light. It happens with bigger collections of particles too, like diamonds."
--Nick Jaina, "Get It While You Can"
