Next week I’ll be heading to Utah. Southern Utah University asked me to be their Visiting Eccles Scholar, which means that I’ll be spending a couple days talking with students and faculty. I’ll also be giving two talks that are open to the public. The first, Wednesday evening, will be on global warming and extinctions, about which I wrote an article for the New York Times a couple months back. The next evening I’ll be talking about E. coli and the meaning of life. It’s the first time I’ll be speaking about my book in public, so I’m looking forward to sharing some of the stuff I learned while writing it. So if you’re anywhere in the vicinity of Cedar City, come on out.
