SORRY - THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

Please join us for a special morning with Richard Dawkins. We'll be toasting the release of his new book, Brief Candle in the Dark: My Life in Science with mimosas!

In this much anticipated memoir, Dawkins delves deeply into his rich intellectual life spent kick-starting new conversations about science, culture, and religion. Dawkins offers a candid look both at what encouraged him to shift his attention from the laboratory to the intersection of culture, religion, and science and at many of the primary figures in the merger between scientific and literary fields. Throughout, Dawkins shares with us his infectious sense of wonder at the natural world, his enjoyment of the absurdities of human interaction, and his bracing awareness of life's brevity: all of which have made a deep imprint on our culture.

Richard Dawkins is the author of a number of best-selling books, including The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion. He was the inaugural holder of the Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Royal Society of Literature Award, the Michael Faraday Award of the Royal Society, the Kistler Prize, the Shakespeare Prize, the Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing About Science, the Galaxy British Book Awards Author of the Year Award, and the International Cosmos Prize of Japan.
