It's been organised by the Edinburgh University Humanist Society, but all are welcome. Tickets are free, and you can book via their Facebook page here.

I won't talk for more than 30 minutes, after which there will be an hour's Q&A session. It should be an interesting and stimulating discussion, so please come along if you can.
