Evolutionary biologist Olivia Judson, author of Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation, will deliver a public lecture, “The Art of Seduction: Sex, Evolution, and the Public,” on Thursday, March 26, 4 p.m. at New York University’s Jurow Lecture Hall (Silver Center, 100 Washington Square East [at Washington Pl.], First Floor).

The lecture, co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Biology, the university’s Liberal Studies Program, and NYU’s Dean for Science, is part of Darwin’s Bicentennial Celebration and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Origins of Species. First come, first served. NYU ID required for entry.

Judson, a research fellow at Imperial College London, authored Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation in the style of a sex-advice column to animals.

It became an international best-seller and was nominated for the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction in 2003. For more information, go to: http://biology.as.nyu.edu/object/news.meetings
