Richard Dawkins has 1 upcoming event.

Milner Book Club
Location: Board Room, 3rd Floor

Join fellow readers the last Friday of every month, 12 noon, for our lively discussion about books, movies, culture, current events and anything else that pops up for discussion. Lots of fun and everyone welcome.

The next meeting will occur on February 27. It's a double-header of serious subjects, firstly with EPL's upcoming guest Lt. Gen Roméo Dallaire and his account of the Rwandan genocide, Shake Hands With the Devil. We will then try to top this with nothing less than the nature of reality itself with the irrepressible Richard Dawkin's The Magic of Reality.

For free reading copies and more information, please call Laurie at 780-496-7000 or send an e-mail to: lhynes@epl.ca (DiegoIbarra)

Short biography
Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist, ethologist, public advocate of atheism, and outspoken critic of religion. His written works generally revolve around evolution and genetics (Selfish Gene; Extended Phenotype) and/or atheism/religious skepticism (The God Delusion; The Blind Watchmaker).

Dawkins has won numerous scholarly and literary prizes and awards, and has lectured at many institutions. He is currently married to actress and illustrator Lalla Ward, who is credited with illustrating many of his books, including The God Delusion.

While he did participate in the Huxley Memorial Debate in 1986, Dawkins gained a great deal of publicity for otherwise refusing to debate creationists, stating that creationists 'don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters is that we give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.'

In his first book, The Selfish Gene, Dawkins coined the term 'meme' to identify ideas and practices which are transfered, adapted, and changed within a society.
