Join world-renowned evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins as he presents his first-ever memoir, An Appetite for Wonder. The author of such seminal works as The Selfish Gene (dubbed “the best work of popular science ever written” by the New York Review of Books) and the atheist treatise The God Delusion arrives at BAM to launch this chronicle of his own intellectual awakening. From birth to the halls of Oxford, trace the development of the man the London Evening Standard called “one of the most outstanding intelligences in modern science.”
An Appetite for Wonder is slated for release on September 24. By purchasing your ticket and book together, you’re securing a copy of the book a full day before its worldwide release. Your book (retail value $27.99) is included in the special ticket price of $40, and will be signed by the author following an evening of discussion and Q&A.
