Lecture explores The Science of LoveEver wonder why you're attracted to one person and not another? Joe Quirk will help explain these mysteries and more during his presentation titled "The Science of Love, Sex, and Relationships" on Wednesday, February 17, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.
In high school, Quirk said that was known for four things: getting detention, getting A's in biology, and having a name like "Quirk." He became a biologist and decided to combine these four talents in his second book, It's Not You. It's Biology, which provides insight, ammunition, snappy comebacks, and interesting banter for everyone who wonders why we behave the way we do.
Quirk is currently launching a campaign to get the science of relationships out of the science aisle and into the relationships aisle of the bookstore. He jokes that he lectures about the biology of relationships to anyone who can't give him detention. He has recently published another book, Tools Are for Men, Talk Is for Women: Why Your Partner's Brain Is Weird.
This presentation is part of the college's Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
