Dinosaur expert Paul Sereno will give a free public lecture Sunday at Oklahoma City University.

The 5 p.m. talk will be at the Sarkeys Law Center, NW 23 and Kentucky Avenue.

Sereno is a National Geographic Society explorer-in-residence who has discovered dinosaurs on five continents and led dozens of expeditions.

The author of books and stories in National Geographic and Natural History and the subject of scores of documentaries, Sereno has received recognition including Chicago Tribune's Teacher of the Year award, Chicago magazine's Chicagoan of the Year, Newsweek's The Century Club, People's 50 Most Beautiful People and Esquire's 100 Best People in the World.

Sereno studied art and biology at Northern Illinois University. A behind-the-scenes museum tour opened his eyes to a life of science, art and adventure.

“I never recovered from that visit,” he said. “In paleontology, I saw an irresistible combination of travel, adventure, art, biology and geology.”
