Kansas City's Fashion Industry, And Where Religion And Science Meet

Kansas City Fashion Week

Kansas City takes the nickname 'Paris of the Plains' seriously, and not just because of our fountains. Today, we learn why Kansas City Fashion Week has designers, photographers, models, makeup artists, and stylists gathered in the Heartland. Then, the director of the Vatican Observatory looks at the intersection of religion and science. He'll also answer an "age-old" question for us: Should extraterrestrials be baptized?

Brother Guy Consolmagno will present 'From Galileo to Laudato Si': Why Science Needs Faith' at the Linda Hall Library at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29. Registration is full, but visit to place your name on the wait list. You can also stream it online.
