Brief Candle in the Dark: My Life in Science
In this hugely entertaining sequel to the New York Times bestselling memoir An Appetite for Wonder, Richard Dawkins delves deeply into his intellectual life spent kick-starting new conversations about science, culture, and religion and writing yet another of the most audacious and widely read books of the twentieth century—The God Delusion.
Throughout A Brief Candle in the Dark, Dawkins shares with us his infectious sense of wonder at the natural world, his enjoyment of the absurdities of human interaction, and his bracing awareness of life’s brevity: all of which have made a deep imprint on our culture.
Richard Dawkins will be in conversation with Josh Zepps. Zepps is a founding host and producer of HuffPost Live and the co-host of Point of Inquiry, the podcast of the Center for Inquiry.
The event will have reserved seating and include a book signing.
