Dr. Bill Bass is coming March 4

Bill Bass, world famous forensic anthropologist, will offer a free lecture in the Roane State theatre (Roane county campus) at 7pm on Thursday, March 4.

This will be Dr. Bass’ 3rd visit to Roane State to talk about his books and his groundbreaking work in the field of criminal anthropology. Bass founded the Body Farm, also known as UT’s Forensic Anthropology Research Center, which is the world’s only laboratory devoted to the study of human decomposition.

Dr. Bass has written or contributed to over 200 scientific publications. He has recently co-authored a popular series of fiction and non-fiction works with Jon Jefferson, under the pseudonym Jefferson Bass.

The lecture is free and open to the community, but seating is limited.

Before the free lecture, Dr. Bass is hosting a dinner at 5:30pm to promote awareness of UT’s proposed new William M. Bass Forensic Anthropology Center. Tickets for the dinner are $50 and must be purchased in advance (before March 2) from Kingston Public Library. Proceeds from the dinner support both the new forensic center and Kingston Public Library. The dinner will be held in the Roane County campus student lounge.

For more ticket information, contact Diana Cash at Kingston Public Library (865.376.9905) or libraryk@comcast.net.

Tickets are not required for the free lecture at 7pm, but all dinner ticket holders are guaranteed a seat in the theatre.
