Reminder: I'm talking in Portland tonight at 7:00!

By Phil Plait | August 1, 2012 1:00 pm

As a reminder, I’ll be at the Bagdad Theater in Portland, Oregon at 7:00 tonight to give my "Death from the Skies!", which if I can be objective for a moment is the single greatest public speaking event you could ever even dream to hope to attend. And that’s me being objective.

I have more info in an earlier blog post, and if you want to attend you can buy tickets here. I hope to see lots of BABloggees there!

Portland, Oregon talk OF DEATH

By Phil Plait | July 30, 2012 10:29 am

I’m very excited to be heading up to Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, August 1, to give my "Death from the Skies!" talk at the Bagdad Theater. This is part of the OMSI Science Pub series, a laid-back event where people like me talk to people like you about stuff like science. In my case, I’ll be talking asteroid impacts and crispy dinosaurs and making fun of the movie "Armageddon" and then saving the world.

This talk is open to the public and starts at 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 5). Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase online. The Oregon Space Grant blog has more info too.

I’ll be doing a book signing afterwards, too. I’ve never been to Portland, so I’m pretty happy about this. I like Oregon quite a bit.
