November 30, 2011
Sponsored by the Lloyd Library and Museum, Cincinnati, OH
One of the most renowned biologists of the nineteenth century, Alfred Russel Wallace shares credit with Charles Darwin for developing the theory of evolution by natural selection. Yet one part of Wallace’s remarkable life and career has been completely ignored: His embrace of intelligent design. Come learn about Wallace’s fascinating journey of discovery through a lecture by Discovery Institute Fellow and University of Alabama Birmingham Professor Michael Flannery followed by a screening of the new 21-minute documentary Darwin’s Heretic. Professor Flannery is author of the acclaimed new biography, Alfred Russel Wallace: A Rediscovered Life. The event will include Q and A with Professor Flannery and a reception.
Sponsored by the Lloyd Library and Museum, this event will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 7:00 pm at the Lloyd Library and Museum, 917 Plum Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202. For more information contact Executive Director Maggie Heran (513) 721-3707.
