Very Short Introductions “Speed-Dating” Evening
Thursday 30th October at 7pm
Blackwell’s Bookshop, 49-53 Broad Street, Oxford
Experience an evening unlike any other – sign up to participate in our Very Short Introductions Speed-Dating Evening!
The Very Short Introductions (VSIs) series is an extremely popular series of books from Oxford University Press in which expert authors make often challenging topics highly readable.
We are bringing eight of the VSI authors together to provide for you an intellectually nutritious smorgasbord of enlightenment! Want to know more about Modern China? The Ice Age? Consciousness? Free Speech? Then this is the night for you, as you spend approximately seven minutes with each of our eight authors in turn.
Our experts for the evening (and the topics they will cover) include Julian Baggini (Atheism), Rana Mitter (Modern China), Sue Blackmore (Consciousness), Peter Atkins (Physical Chemistry), Jonathan Slack (Stem Cells), Nigel Warburton (Free Speech), Jamie Woodward (The Ice Age) and Robert Eaglestone (Contemporary Fiction).
This is highly experimental! Anything could happen! This could all prove remarkably, mind-blowingly educational!
Tickets for this cerebral extravaganza cost only £3 and include a glass of wine. Tickets can be obtained from our Customer Services Department or by telephoning 01865 333623 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
There are strictly EIGHTY PLACES ONLY for this event so please book early so as not to miss out.
