HMNS: Secrets of the Golden Dinosaur Horde by Bob Bakker

Galloping Triceratopses! Tickling Tyrannosaurus! Join our own Curator of Paleontology Dr. Bob Bakker for the release of his new book The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs. Was T. rex a slow-footed stumble-bum? No! Were tyrannosaurs devoid of any gentle, nurturing gestures? No way! Were gigantic meat-eating dinos ticklish? You bet! Could you out-run an angry charging triceratopsine? Don't even try. Who was the highest life form in the Jurassic? A. our human ancestors. B. raptor-type dinos. Correct answer: B. Learn how the "Dinosaurian Dynasty" shaped all evolution on land, including ours, and even invented flowers! This animated lecture by Robert T. Bakker, Ph.D., with be followed by a book signing, with exciting dinosaur activities prior to event starting at 5 p.m.

    Just had to cancel. My wife is ill and I figured I better get home and play doctor.

    His lecture is always for all ages. But Bob is pushing his new kid's book and loves interacting with the younger set anyway.

    What is the rough age range of this? I have a 10 year old son who'd love to go. The book doesn't seem too above him.

    Thanks. There is a print ticket button on the setup screen. Can we purchase online, or do we pay on arrival?

    Been looking for any fees that will be due. Is this a completely free event? Don't mind chipping in, but I can't find anything that says otherwise........

    I should also be easy to find. Apparently I always look like trouble. :-)

      Unfortunately I am very familiar with what trouble looks like..........

    Speaking of trouble ... here's my idea for this lecture. Find a ratty old cowboy hat and see if you can come dressed like Dino-Bob Bakker. You can see the photo and he WILL look like that on the 24th. He once loaned out his hat for the paleontologist in Jurrasic Park that was eaten on screen by a t-rex. I have the vest ... looking now for that ratty old hat. If we all sit together, it could even be more fun. Cheers, John

    Really looking forward to this. I work in the med center, so will just take the train there and hang out beforehand. Look for the bald guy in the grey uniform.
