Join Richard Dawkins at Kepler's Books, founded in Menlo Park in May 1955. For 57 years, Kepler's has been the intellectual and cultural hub for the Peninsula, known for its outstanding literary events, knowledgeable staff, broad selection of books and magazines, and for its deep ties to the community.
Richard will be speaking about his new book, An Appetite for Wonder: the making of a scientist, a memoir covering his early life in colonial Kenya, his intellectual awakening at Oxford, and the creation of his books and philosophy.
"The Richard Dawkins that emerges here is a far cry from the strident, abrasive caricature beloved of lazy journalists with an op-ed piece to file. There is no score-settling, but a generous appreciation and admiration of the qualities of others, as well as a transparent love of life, literature – and science." - Brandon Robshar, The Independent
Dawkins has been central to the debates surrounding creationism, intelligent design and religion. He coined the word meme, and his gene-centric view of evolution helped popularize the radical new understanding of Darwinism.
Tickets are available now online at Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets will be available at Kepler's soon.
