An Evening with Jared Diamond -- tickets available tonight at the door
Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 7:00 PM (CST)
Oak Park, IL
TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR TONIGHT. Cash or check only.
Hear Pulitzer Prize-winning and best-selling author Jared Diamond discuss his new book, "The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies."
The author of "Collapse" and "Guns, Germs and Steel," surveys the differences between traditional societies and industrial or post-industrial societies, with an eye to one question: what can we learn from the former that can make the world we live in a better place for all of us?
This ticketed event, a fundraiser for the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library, will be held at Unity Temple, 875 Lake Street, directly across the street from the Main Library.
Tickets may be redeemed that night for a discount off the cover price of Diamond's new book.
Unity Temple doors open at 6:00 pm. A reception and book signing will follow at the Main Library, 834 Lake St., Oak Park, IL 60301.
