Dinner with Darwin
Only a few more days until we begin a year of Darwinic celebration, and cogitation. The year 2009 marks 200 years since the birth of Charles Darwin, and 150 years since the publication of The Origin of Species. And we all know what that means - apart from him being 50 when he published 'the book', and me fast approaching that age without that kind of publication in mind...
From now to next Christmas will be wall-to-wall Darwin events. We have plenty lined up at the Botanic Gardens, including debates and talks, garden displays and art, and first up a fancy dinner with some of the brightest and entertaining guests on the planet.
Invest in your mind, and book in for dinner on 11 February 2009 (sponsored by the Botanic Gardens Trust and the Australian Museum):
