Doors open at 5:00pm. Most Science Pubs fill quickly, so come early for food, drink, and to get a seat!

$5 suggested cover charge
Since the doors open at 5 pm, I would appreciate if some of you could show up early to help safe seats for the people that come later! Please mention in your RSVP if you are able to be there around 5 pm - for a chance - I will not be able to get there at 5 pm, so I am relying on other folks to help me out by being there early!!!
Skulls tells the story of the skull, in both the human and animal worlds. Skulls—human in the main, but by no means exclusively—have exerted for thousands of years an almost inexplicable power over the human imagination. They are symbols both of existence and of former existence; they are freighted with terror and awe; they tell of life, death, and the afterlife, of good and evil, of danger, authority and majesty. Perhaps no other biological entity retains such a grip on human psychology as does this assemblage of hollow bone, this thing of domes and socket and jaws and of mysterious interior passageways and canals. People are fascinated and captivated by skulls. They always have been, and always will be.
Simon Winchester, is the author of the bestselling The Professor and the Madman, Krakatoa, and a number of other books. In Skulls, Winchester presents a spellbinding visual exploration of an obsessive collector of what some may call the macabre—over 300 animal skulls, including amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, and reptiles.
