Your Inner Fish
ESI's Book Club to Celebrate Your Inner Fish: Join us during the pre-lecture event to discuss Neil Shubin's book Your Inner Fish. The book club will be led by UT evolutionary biologist Professor David Cannatella. Teachers can receive professional development credit for attendance at the book club. The book club is open to all; to RSVP and join the book club, click here. Professor Shubin will be available after the lecture to sign copies of his book Your Inner Fish . Copies of his book may be purchased at the event. With Your Inner Fish, Professor Neil Shubin tells the story of evolution by tracing the organs of the human body back millions of years, long before the first creatures walked the earth. By examining fossils and DNA, Shubin shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our head is organized like that of a long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genome look and function like those of worms and bacteria. Join The Center for Inquiry for a free discussion about the presentation topic after the lecture. Interested parties should meet at the CFI table after the presentation to walk to the Texas Unions building located at the U.T. campus for this lively discussion.
