Retired Nevada City math teacher Robert Sharp pens sci-fi thriller
September 20, 2016
Former Nevada City teacher Robert Sharp will be hosting a book signing from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 8 at The Open Book in Grass Valley. Sharp's sci-fi thriller, "Alpha Black," features many of his long time interests in quantum physics, human potential and meta-physics.
"Mr. Sharp," as his former students still refer to him, enjoyed using the classroom to present his math students with excursions into the realm of "Big Ideas." The challenge of keeping young minds interested and challenged was an instrumental topic in his book, said Sharp, who asserts that "everyone carries an inner lodestone that tells us something is missing and keeps prompting us to go find it. But our programming is hard wired to largely ignore these soft messages." The book uses as a premise the notion that "there is profound knowledge available for the person who seeks it and is prepared."
"Alpha Black" will be available for sale at local book stores. It is written for mature readers — any parent with concerns should read it first, stresses Sharp.
