World-famous evolutionary biologist, science educator, and atheist writer Richard Dawkins will speak on the evening of Oct. 14 at Macky Auditorium.
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.”
