American Museum of Natural History event

I have been asked to publicise the following:

WHAT: SciCafe presents Darwin on Facebook: How Culture Transforms Human Evolution featuring Anthropologist Peter Richerson.

Help celebrate the 150th anniversary of On the Origin of Species with a night about Darwin, culture, and social media. Come hear anthropologist Peter Richerson of UC Davis explain how social networking sites like Facebook may affect the course of human evolution as he launches a discussion about how our success as a species owes much to our capacity for social interactions—then enjoy the rest of the evening testing out his theory.

Surrounded by magnificent rock and mineral specimens in the Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth, enjoy the Museum after hours with music, drinks, and thought-provoking conversation at the second instalment of the popular new SciCafe series at the American Museum of Natural History.  SciCafe features cutting-edge science, cocktails, and conversation and takes place on the first Wednesday of every month.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 4, 7 pm
WHERE: Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth, American Museum of Natural History (enter at the 81st/Rose Center).
ADMISSION: Free Admission with cash bar, must be 21+ with ID

(I knew Facebook would get us into trouble one of these days.)
