Richard Dawkins will be in conversation about his new book, An Appetite For Wonder: The Making of a Scientist (A Memoir).

Here, for the first time is an intimate look into the childhood and intellectual development of the world’s most famous atheist and evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, “one of the most outstanding intelligences in modern science” (Evening Standard) and “one of the greatest nonfiction writers alive today” (Steven Pinker). Dawkins will be in conversation with Dorian Devins.

The mission of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science is to support scientific education, critical thinking and evidence-based understanding of the natural world in the quest to overcome religious fundamentalism, superstition, intolerance and suffering.
