15 W. 43rd St

Richard Dawkins is considered by some to be the modern day Charles Darwin.  Richard Dawkins has revolutionized science and how society understands it.  Dawkins is one of the most influential scientists of our time and in the history of science. The New York Times Book Review has hailed him as a writer who "'understands the issues so clearly that he forces his reader to understand them too."  Dawkins is also considered one of science's most innovative thinkers.
 

In a recent poll, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins was named the world's "Top Thinker" for his global influence and significance, ranking above four Nobel prize winners.

Dawkins upcoming book, An Appetite for Wonder, is a memoir that marks the first time he’s given his passionate following real insight into his own evolution as a man and as a thinker. From his beginnings in colonial Kenya to his intellectual awakening at Oxford, Dawkins shares his path to the creation of The Selfish Gene, one of the most important books of the last century. Here, for the first time is an intimate look into the childhood and intellectual development of the world’s most famous atheist and evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, “one of the most outstanding intelligences in modern science.” (Evening Standard) and “one of the greatest nonfiction writers alive today”. (Steven Pinker)

There will be a fascinating conversation with Richard Dawkins. Each paid attendee will receive Dawkins’s upcoming book An Appetite for Wonder. Free drinks will be served at the event. Early RSVPs are suggested as the event will reach capacity.
