Hub City Bookshop Welcomes Neil deGrasse Tyson to Converse University

September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$30 – $60
Neil deGrasse Tyson Converse

Hub City Bookshop is excited to welcome author and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to the Converse University Twichell Auditorium at Zimmerli Performance Center on Tuesday, September 27th for an evening celebrating the release of his new book, Starry Messenger: Cosmic Perspectives on Civilization. Bringing his signature insight to some of the most crucial fault lines of our time—war, politics, religion, truth, beauty, gender, and race—Tyson’s book provides an antidote to the earth-bound point-of-view that so often divides us in contemporary times. The author will be joined in conversation by Dr. Will Case, Converse University Associate Professor of Chemistry.

This is a ticketed event, with each ticket including a signed copy of the book. Tickets are available through the Converse University website.

Converse Students, Faculty and StaffCall or email the box office for a special discount for the book/ticket.

The event will begin at 7 pm, with doors opening at 6:15 pm. Can’t wait to see you there!
