A “Field” Day in Winnetka
The Book Stall at Chestnut Court, Monday, April 21 at 7pm
The Book Stall is pleased and honored to host three of the country’s leading scientists, all with current and former leadership roles at The Field Museum in Chicago, for a joint presentation centered around their new books on Monday, April 21, at 7 pm at the Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Ave.

We welcome former Field Museum provost Dr. Robert Martin, currently the museum’s Curator of Biological Anthropology; Dr. Lance Grande, the museum’s Distinguished Service Curator responsible for its academic departments of anthropology, botany, geology, and zoology; and Sir Peter Crane, currently Dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and former director of the Field Museum from 1992-99. From 1999-2006, he was director of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew in the UK, where he was knighted in 2004 for services to horticulture and conservation.

Each will present a brief book talk, followed by a question-and-answer session.

• Dr. Martin’s How we do it: The Evolution and Future of Human Reproduction draws on 40 years of research in his examination of the procreative history of humans, as well as that of our primate kin, to reveal what is truly natural when it comes to making and raising babies.

• Dr. Crane’s Ginkgo: The Tree That Time Forgot traces the beautiful tree’s lineage from the time of dinosaurs to the 21st century, a book described as both scholarly and highly accessible and praised by one reviewer as “an important biography of the ultimate survivor.”

• Dr. Grande’s The Lost World of Fossil Lake: Snapshots from Deep Time covers the history, discovery, and exploration of the remarkable fossils uncovered in southwestern Wyoming around the ghost town of Fossil. With incredible color photographs of the fossils and an explanation of their evolutionary significance, the book is a breathtaking window into our planet’s long-lost past.

This event is free and open to the public. Please join us to celebrate this unique outpouring of science for the general public by three of The Field Museum’s most distinguished curatorial leaders over the past 20 years.

Global Voices Author Lecture: Shadi Hamid discusses Temptations of Power ~ International House, Assembly Hall
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Tuesday, April 22 at 6pm
TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 6 PM INTERNATIONAL HOUSE ASSEMBLY HALL 1414 E. 59TH ST. PHONE: 773.753.2270

In Temptations of Power, Hamid draws on hundreds of interviews with leaders and activists from across the region to advance a new understanding of how Islamist movements change over time. He puts forward the bold thesis that repression "forced" Islamists to moderate their politics, work in coalitions, de-emphasize Islamic law, and set aside the dream of an Islamic state. Meanwhile, democratic openings in the 1980s--and again during the Arab Spring--pushed Islamists back toward their original conservatism.

Shadi Hamid is a Brookings Fellow in the Saban Center for Middle East Policy, vice-chair of the Project on Middle East Democracy (POMED), a member of the World Bank’s MENA Advisory Panel, and a correspondent for The Atlantic.

Sponsored by the Global Voices Lecture Series , The Seminary Co-op Bookstore, The Center for International Studies World Beyond the Headlines Series. Free and open to the public.
