Renowned for his unapologetic advocacy of science and reason, Dawkins is celebrated for ground-breaking work that captivates millions with his passion for scientific inquiry.

In his new tour – which begins in the USA in September, before heading to the UK and Europe – Dawkins and a number of special guests will connect with audiences in unscripted conversations touching on topics from science to religion, life on earth and beyond.

Audiences will hear first-hand about forthcoming book – The Genetic Book of the Dead – in which Dawkins delves into the transformative potential of DNA in our understanding of evolution.
