An Evening with Alan Lightman
10/25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Bill Evertsberg at Glencoe Union Church for a lecture and discussion from Dr. Alan Lightman on “Fact & Faith.”
MIT Professor, Astrophysicist, Internationally Acclaimed Science-Writer and Novelist
New York Times Book Review, Michael Shermer writes about Alan Lightman’s recent book:
Science needs its poets, and Alan Lightman is the perfect amalgam of scientist (an astrophysicist) and humanist (a novelist who’s also a professor of the practice of humanities at M.I.T.), and his latest book, “Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine,” is an elegant and moving paean to our spiritual quest for meaning in an age of science.
Mark your calendars now! The evening will include a presentation by Dr. Lightman on the relationship between religion and science along with time for conversation with him on a range of related topics. The event will be free and open to everyone.
