Why Evolution is True….and Nobody Believes It

Author and U Chicago biology professor Jerry Coyne will give a public lecture called "Why Evolution Is True….and Nobody Believes It" on Monday, March 28 at 6 p.m. at the University of Maryland, College Park Biosciences Research Building (BRB) 1101.

I've read his book "Why Evolution Is True," and I think it's the best single-volume easy-to-read explanation of what evolution is.

The full announcement and campus map with a big blue star over the Biosciences Research Building are below.
"College Park Scholars Life Sciences is pleased to present the first “Lee Hellman Lecture in the Life Sciences” on Monday, March 28, 2011, at 6:00 PM in BRB 1101. Refreshments will be available in the Colonnade next to the lecture theater beginning about 5:15 PM.
Lee Hellman, Emeritus Professor of Entomology, is the founding director of the Life Sciences Scholars Program and remains an integral component of the program to this day.
Each year, Life Sciences Scholars will bring a prominent scientist or journalist to campus who has written a book or article on an important topic in the life sciences directed at a level appropriate for our students and of interest to the general university community. The speaker for the first Hellman Lecture is Dr. Jerry A. Coyne, previously a faculty member in the Department of Zoology at Maryland and now Professor of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago. Dr. Coyne is the author of the 2009 New York Times bestseller, Why Evolution Is True."
