Linda Hall Library Lectures

The Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering & Technology is situated adjacent to the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  I think it must be my favorite library.  Ever.

There is a couple really interesting things coming up at Linda Hall Libarary.  Check 'em out:

Friday October 16, 2009

The year 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of the Origin of Species. The Linda Hall Library will commemorate these Darwin anniversaries with book discussions, film and lecture series, and an exhibition of rare books from our History of Science Collection. All events are free and open to the public.

Special Lecture - "Darwin's Evolution as Naturalist: A Bird's-eye View"

Lyanda Haupt is an author and naturalist in Seattle. Her works include "Pilgrim on the Great Bird Continent: The Importance of Everything and Other Lessons from Darwin's Lost Notebooks" (Little-Brown, 2006), and her latest book, "Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness", will be out this July.
