Two book talks from Powell’s Books, Inc. that may be of interest to nature/biology-minded folk in Portland:
Sunday, Nov 14th, 7:30pm (Powell’s City of Books in downtown): In The Darwinian Tourist: Viewing the World Through Evolutionary Eyes, biologist Christopher Wills takes us on a series of adventures that demonstrate how ecology/evolution have interacted to create the world we live in.
Tuesday, Nov 16th, 6pm (Bagdad Theater): Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World Without God is a provocative look at the collision between religion and science by Greg Graffin, a founding member of the cult punk band Bad Religion as well as a biology lecturer at UCLA.
I will be going to the first one, not sure about the second one. Powell’s calendar: http://www.powells.com/calendar/
