Atkinson Lecture featuring Brian Greene
Start Date: 11/14/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description

Tickets for this event are SOLD OUT.

Willamette University’s Atkinson Lecture Series will feature a speaker who’s been described by The Washington Post as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.” He’s a frequent contributor across media, and he’s hosted an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning television special based on one of his three bestselling books. Physicist Brian Greene has earned his place among the world’s premier communicators, and he’s coming to Salem in November.

From CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” to The New York Times and Wired, Greene uses humor and dry wit, which has been tested several times on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” When Greene stopped by to promote the World Science Festival, Colbert flippantly asked a key question, “Science – what’s the big deal?”


On Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m., Greene will share the answer through his talk, “Why Science Matters.”
