Where: Visitor Center Ballroom
The author of The New York Times bestselling book Wicked Plants will be at Fairchild signing and reading from her new book Wicked Bugs, a darkly comical look at the sinister side of our relationship with the natural world.
In her latest book, Stewart tracked down over one hundred of our worst entomological foes-creatures that infest, infect and generally wreak havoc on human affairs. From the world's most painful hornet, to the flies that transmit deadly diseases, to millipedes that stop traffic, to the "bookworms" that devour libraries, Wicked Bugs delves into the extraordinary powers of six- and eight-legged creatures.
This event is free and open to the public.
