Just a note for readers in Georgia and South Carolina: I’m giving a series of lectures in those states beginning on Saturday, Feb. 2, and continuing through the 7th. I’m putting this up in advance for those who want to make plans.
Saturday, Feb. 2: Talk on WEIT and other stuff spondored by the Fayette Freethought Society, Peachtree City Humanists and the Spalding Freethought Society, in Peachtree City, right outside Atlanta. There are two Facebook pages set up by these groups; you can get registration info and directions here or see who’s coming here. Note: although there’s a charge of $15 (which includes a drink), I am not being paid for this; the money goes to rent the venue. I think there’s a book-signing afterwards, and if you say the secret word (“Henri”, with the French pronunciation), I’ll sketch a cat with my autograph.
Monday, Feb. 4: Talk in Augusta, Georgia sponsored by the Central Savannah River Atheists and Agnostics: “Science and religion are incompatible” at the Jabez Sanford Performing Arts Center at 6:30 pm. Information is here; admission is free, and there may be a book signing, but I’m not sure. If there is, the secret word applies here, too.
Tuesday, Feb. 5: Book talk at Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina. No information available yet.
Wednesday, Feb. 6: Book talk at The University of South Carolina at Columbia. No information available yet. (Clearly, skeptic organizations are more efficient than universities!)
Thursday, Feb. 7: two events on Feb. 7 during Darwin Week at the College of Charleston (link takes you to all information)
4:00 p.m. Book talk (I don’t know if there’s a signing; if so, secret word applies)
7:30 p.m. A debate and then discussion on “Are science and faith incompatible?” with Dr. Lea Sweitz of the Lutheran School of Theology here in Chicago (only two blocks from my office!). I’m looking forward to this one, though I just found, by going to the link, that it’s being held in a church.
This grueling schedule makes me the Hardest Working Man in the Evolution Business (where’s my cape?).
If anybody can recommend BBQ joints or other Southern restaurants in these places, please weigh in below. Remember, I’m serious about Southern food, so the BBQ must be outstanding.
