Harvard Hearts Joss Whedon [Event]

Gonna be near Cambridge on April 10th? Don't miss out!

Tickets to see Joss Whedon receive the Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from Harvard University!

The only other recipients of this award so far are Salman Rushdie and
evolutionary biologist, Greg Graffin. So, Joss is in good company.

Some more info on the event,

The ceremony will take place on Friday April 10 at 8pm, in The Memorial Church in Harvard Yard. Preceding the presentation of the award, Mr. Whedon will give a short speech about his life and work as a Humanist. The award ceremony will be followed by a Q&A session with Mr. Whedon, as well as a signing opportunity in the church.

Whedon has a devoted following of fans, including the online web community whedonesque.com. In addition to his art, he has also been active in promoting women's rights through his work with Equality Now, an organization that honored him in 2006.

His speech to that group shows his passionate commitment to the positive values of Humanism.
