Richard Dawkins Lecture
Presented by the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Science and Reason
Monday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Evolutionary biology icon Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) has spent his career elucidating the wonders of science for adult readers. Now, he brings his message to a younger audience. In The Magic of Reality, richly illustrated by Dave McKean, Dawkins navigates between mythology and evidence-based understanding of the natural world to answer such questions as, “What is reality?” “Why do bad things happen?” “How and why did everything begin?” “Are we alone?” As Dawkins says, “In an age of wizards and vampires, children need to rediscover the wonder of the real world.”
Sean Faircloth will also be speaking. Book signings will follow the talks and books can be purchased at the event.
