Event Details

An Evening with Jared DiamondJared Diamond, Professor, UCLA; Author, Guns, Germs and SteelCollapse and The World Until Yesterday

In conversation with Kishore Hari, Director, Bay Area Science Festival

Jared Diamond is a scientist known for drawing from a variety of fields, from anthropology to evolutionary biology. He has published several popular science books, including Pulitzer Prize-winning Guns, Germs and Steel and, most recently, The World Until Yesterday. Diamond’s conclusions are critical and provocative, exploring concepts like how humans evolved to be so different from animals, despite sharing over 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, and why Eurasian peoples conquered Native Americans and Africans instead of vice versa. Diamond yet again challenges the way our brains think in The World Until Yesterday as he chronicles tribal peoples and what they can teach us about the shortcomings of modern society. Join us for a night of intellectual stimulation with one of the world’s most celebrated polymaths.

Location: Castro Theatre, 429 Castro Street, San Francisco 

Time: 5:45 p.m. check-in and premium reception, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. book signing
