Collapse tonight with Jared Diamond

When it comes right down to it, UCLA professor, Pulitzer prizewinner, evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond is all that. Guns, Germs and Steel is about how societies evolved; Collapse is about how they disappeared. Tonight he'll be speaking about one, or the other, or perhaps what happens in-between at the Skirball Cultural Center. Tickets are still available; they're not cheap, but $20 is still less than you'd pay to register at UCLA.

The nonprofit organization Writer's Bloc hosts cool writers speaking and in conversation; the Leonard Nimoy - Gene Wilder event was one of theirs.

If you're busy tonight, the Collapse exhibit is on at the Natural History Museum until Jan 15.
