Meet Richard Dawkins in Person!
#1 Atheist Hero to Speak at NYCA Meeting
New York City Atheists Inc. (NYCA) is honored to announce that author and Atheist icon Richard Dawkins will be speaking in person at its monthly meeting on September 26th at 7 PM.
NYCA is proud to host Prof. Dawkins as he introduces to America his new book, “AN APPETITE FOR WONDER - THE MAKING OF A SCIENTIST.”
NYCA was selected to be a host to Dawkins on this book tour by the Secular Coalition of America (SCA), a Washington DC-based lobbying group for the secular community that NYCA has been lobbying with and working with for many years, as has Prof. Dawkins.
An Intimate Memoir
Dawkins’ new book, An Appetite for Wonder - The Making of a Scientist, (Ecco Press, $27.99) is an intimate memoir of the first part of his life from his childhood in Africa to his intellectual awakening at Oxford and his path to becoming an evolutionary biologist, author of his first famous book, The Selfish Gene, and the world-renowned Atheist he is today. A second memoir is planned to cover his later life and the publication of what is arguably his most famous book, The God Delusion.
After Dawkins’ speech, there will be a question and answer period. After the Q and A, Prof. Dawkins will be available to sign his books, which NYCA will have on hand for a special price.
Note: NYC Atheists will have approximately 50 copies of Richard Dawkins latest book on hand at a special price of $20, cash only. Since we expect a huge crowd at this event, please purchase your book before the talk and hold it for autographing afterwards.
WHAT: Richard Dawkins Speaks About His New Book, “An Appetite for Wonder - The Making of a Scientist.” He will be accompanied by Edwina Rogers, executive director of the Secular Coalition of America, who will talk about Prof. Dawkins’ special role as advisor and supporter of SCA.
