I had mentioned Richard Dawkins will be announcing the winner of the Royal Society prize for popular science books in a live video link at the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival. (See New Zealand popular science books). I hadn’t realised that Dawkin’s appearance would be more extensive.

Details of the event are:
