As much as we all love pie, drop the “e” and you will have the love of math geeks near and far. What is Pi? Pi or is used when calculating the math for round shapes and paths. Paths like NASCAR tracks and electron orbits. Electrons are used to generate nuclear power at places like Ohio’s Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station. Loconeal Publishing author, PJ Grondin, used his behind-the-scenes knowledge of Davis-Besse to write his suspense novel, A Lifetime of Terror.
Pi Day comes every year, but this year is different. “It will be the Pi Day of the Century, a Pi Day so rare it won't happen again until 2115. That's because the first 10 digits of the infinite series of digits that make up pi looks like this, when written in date and time form: 3.14.15 9:26:53. That's March 14, 2015, at 9:26:53 a.m.”* (Non-purists, can celebrate again that night.)
This year’s Pi Day is also special for Loconeal Publishing. We will be celebrating at Cleveland ConCoction 2015. Stop by and visit with Loconeal authors: PJ Grondin, Sandra Gurvis, Addie J King, Anne Marie Lutz, Christine Benedict, & James O. Barnes.
