Wendy Northcutt: The Darwin Awards, in conversation with Mike Sugerman, Reporter, CBS-5 and KCBS All News 740-AM

Come discover the entertaining and morbid series of awards ‘presented’ in honor of the recipient doing something so stultifyingly stupid, says author Northcutt, “that it results in the individual’s removal from being able to make any future donations to the human gene pool.” Her concept has become a cult favorite, leading to five books and a web site, filled with stories of individuals whose time on earth and contribution to the gene pool have ended. Join us for an intriguing and enlightening discussion. This is part of the Evolve 2009 series, in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Charles Darwin’s book The Origin of Species.

At The Commonwealth Club, Club Office, 595 Market Street, 2nd Fl., San Francisco.
