    I enjoyed the evening, questions, & the big group of people with mostly useful mental energy.

    OK, I've only been to just a couple book talks. I never know...do people usually buy the book before hand and read it or get them at the door? At the moment, I only generally know what the talk with be about.

    I heard this event is sold out. Hope everyone who has tickets enjoys hearing him - I have heard him a number of times; he is a great intellectual.

    I, years ago, purchased and read Dawkins' 2006 "The God Delusion." Will bring it with me for him to sign.

    Thanks so much for making more tickets available, Steven. I noticed that they will also go on sale the day of the event at 5 pm...do you have any recommendations about how early we should arrive even if we have prepurchased a ticket? I recall one PSU event that we had arrived early, found seating, and then the organizers cleared the hall, requiring us to stand in a long line for readmission, so it would be lovely to know when the ballroom will actually be open for seating.

      The event starts at 7. I imagine entry will be 15 to 20 minutes before unless we aren't ready.

    My apologies. Tickets sold pretty fast. I have made another 200 tickets available today. You should be able to get them within the day.

    No. I'm not sure why someone tried to change the location but it is in the ballroom and that will not change.

    It is at the Smith Ballroom. The address is right below where it says smith ballroom.

    Ok, I'm confused, if the event will be held somewhere else, what about the tickets already purchased from PSU?

  • Gene McManus removed the location. It was Smith Ballroom

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
