Richard Dawkins will be giving a lecture on Monday, October 16th at 7:30 pm at the Lied Center on the University of Kansas Campus in Lawrence. It is free, no ticket required. His topic is "The God Delusion" after his new book of the same name. I for one am not going to miss it.
Additionally, Eugenie Scott will be in this area (Manhattan, KC, etc) several times this fall as well.
