December 7, 2011 is the date when Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson will be in Edwardsville and speaking at the Morris University Center to a sold-out audience.

Taking place in the Morris University Center’s Meridian Ballroom at 7:30 p.m., attendees will probably have a chance to view everything from flyer printing and posters to the work of brochure printers on their way to this lecture. For a program like this one in particular, there is also likely to be a leaflet available as well.

The title of Dr. Tyson’s lecture is ‘Our Past, Present, and Future in Space’. People who have attended his talks before have come away impressed with the depth and breadth of his knowledge. This one will be no different.
