Welcome to CFI's monthly lecture and movie night series!

Each month we alternate between a lecture and a movie. In celebration of Darwin Day, this month's lecture is about evolution.

Professor of Geology, Charles Jones, PhD. will discuss transitional gaps in the fossil record! His lecture is entitled, "Darwin and the fossil record: Transitional fossils he would have loved to have seen." Dr. Jones's research at the University of Pittsburgh involves the geochemistry of sedimentary rocks and fossils as applied to problems in paleoceanography and global climate change. Read more about Charles Jones here (http://www.geology.pitt.edu/people/faculty/charles-jones.html).

In honor of Charles Darwin's 205th birthday, we'll have cake and ice cream.

See you there!

P.S. We usually head to Ali Baba's on nearby Craig Street at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-lecture or pre-movie dinner. Please leave a comment below if you are coming to dinner so we can include you in the reservation. Thanks!

P.S.S. In cooperation with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank (http://www.pittsburghfoodbank.org), we are collecting nonperishable food items every month at this event. Please consider bringing an item to place in the collection box. Thanks!
