A number of my upcoming “events” have been more or less finalized (barring natural or national catastrophe, collapse, or cataclysm or, well, catabasis).   At the bottom are the currently scheduled book readings/lectures based on my forthcoming Heaven and Hell: A History of the Afterlife.

Any questions about any of this, let me know.

 

But first: my two international venues.

 

APRIL 14-24, 2020

Tour to Rome!!

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times on the blog, most recently here: https://ehrmanblog.org/my-trip-to-rome-interested-in-joining/

This is going to be an amazing trip!   But they are ALMOST completely full.  So if you think you want to go, better contact them now.   Here is the brochure with contact information for the organizers, Thalassa Tours.

April 24-30

Lecture tour in Sweden.

This has just been added to my schedule.   I will be giving talks at universities in Umeå, Stockholm, and possibly Upsala.  Are you in Sweden?  Maybe we could meet!

 

THEN, in OCTOBER 2020

October 16-29

Tour to Egypt, sponsored by the University of North Carolina General Alumni Association (you don’t need to be an alumnus/alumna to come)

It too looks amazing.  https://alumni.unc.edu/events/2020-discover-egypt-the-nile-valley/

This one is already FULL,  BUT, they have a waiting list and with these things, often someone(s) have to cancel.  So think about it!

 

NOW  for my future speaking events, most of which have to do with Heaven and Hell!

 

 

February 28-29: 

 CHAPEL HILL, NC  (This one is sold out, but there is a waiting list, and people do drop out.
