Please RSVP by email. It is essential to RSVP in order to confirm that a seat is available.
From the Nature review of Annie’s Box (Nature 411, 739-740; 2001), by Bruce Weber:
Keynes sees in Darwin’s relationship with his daughter threads that tie together disparate aspects of his life and thought. He makes a compelling case and reveals an aspect of Darwin that should be incorporated into our total picture of him. The writing is graceful, the illustrations are apt and affecting, and the thesis is convincingly presented.
