Neil deGrasse Tyson, Neil Gaiman, Two People Not Named Neil to Speak in Dallas

Fran Lebowitz and Garrison Keillor are also featured in ATTPAC's upcoming lecture series.

Now’s your chance to spend Valentine’s Day with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The suave nerd is opening the third season of the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s herehear lecture series. This is the second time that hearhere has hosted Tyson, who took part in the series’ first season.

The lectures continue next year with Fran Lebowitz, Garrison Keillor, and Neil Gaiman. Lebowitz, the sharp-tongued New York social critic, will speak on March 31 and April 1, offering biting insights on current issues. Keillor, creator of the beloved radio show A Prairie Home Companion, will present “Stories from Lake Wobegon.” Gaiman, author of Coraline, American Gods, and the Sandman comic book series, is also an inspiring speaker with viral videos to prove it.

You’ll have to wait to buy individual tickets, but season subscriptions are on sale now. The passes cost between $155 and $475, and include entrance to all four lectures. The speakers will appear at the Winspear, except for Lebowitz, who will speak across the street at the Wyly.

Here are the dates for hearhere’s 3rd season:

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson – February 14
  • Fran Lebowitz – March 31, April 1
  • Garrison Keillor – May 9
  • Neil Gaiman – July 7
