The Honors Series Welcomes David Linden, Author of Touch: The Science of Hand, Heart and Mind

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Johns Hopkins University neurobiologist and best-selling author David Linden draws the audience into the world of his latest book, Touch: The Science of Hand, Heart & Mind.

Linden details the intimate relationship of touch, your brain and emotion, and distinguishes the different experiences of touch and the “meanings” they impart to us–what feels good and what feels bad. Linking biology and behavioral science, Linden offers an entertaining and enlightening answer to how we feel in every sense of the word.

The Arts & Letters Committee Present American Shakespeare Center’s Production of Julius Caesar

In this profoundly moving, thrilling and deeply human play, Shakespeare shows us a world on fire; a world spinning out of control; a world where some of history’s most famous men commit horrific crimes in the name of patriotism and honor. 

Julius Caesar is a dazzling masterpiece of betrayal, violence and perhaps most surprisingly — love. American Shakespeare Center’s production of Julius Caesar is part of Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Willie Miller Instructional Center, Lemerand Auditorium, Embry-Riddle University, 600 S. Clyde Morris Blvd., Daytona Beach, Fla. Free to faculty, staff and students with an EAGLEcard, $5 for the public. Arrive early and enjoy light refreshments. For more information, call (386) 226-6668. This event is open to the public.
