Richard Dawkins in Wellington next March

dawkins lectureAuckland got Richard Dawkins by video this year when he announced the winner of the inaugural Royal Society NZ science Book of the Year award.

Next March Wellington will get him in person. Dawkins will be speaking during the Writers and Readers Week at the NZ International Arts Festival.

Details (evening of Wednesday March 10 at the Wellington Town Hall) are at the Arts Festival website. Tickets can also be booked from there.

Something to look forward to?

  1. Oh rats! That’s one speaker I’d love to go & listen to. But alas! It’s the beginning of our teaching semester, my classes will be in full swing, & I doubt I’ll be able to get down there 😦


  2. Ah – the advantages of retirement. And I do have family to visit in Wellington.

    However, I wonder if anyone will try to tour him around a bit. You would think the Royal Society could do something as he does draw large audiences.
