Details

The Suncoast Skeptics Speaker Series kicks off August 16 with a talk by group member and new mommy Tyne Hopkins Venzeio. Mrs. Venzeio holds a degree in biology, works with manatees at South Florida Museum, and has a very personal interest in the teaching of science in public classrooms.

Her talk will look at the 'evolution' of attempts to bring creationism into classrooms. There will be plenty of time for questions and open discussion.

The talk will take place in the Geldbart Auditorium at Selby Library (if you are uncertain where this is at Selby, just ask anyone working the desks to point it out to you, it is on the ground floor).

Feel free to bring drinks and/or food to the talk, these are allowed by the library in the meeting rooms. Bring friends and family as well, we have tons of space available and would love to see a good turnout. There will be ample time to ask questions and discuss the subject with others.
