Amy Stewart on WICKED BUGS

An informal discussion

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
4:30 p.m.

In this darkly comical look at the sinister side of our relationship with the natural world, Stewart has tracked down over 100 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, to the Japanese beetles munching on your roses, Wicked Bugs delves into the extraordinary powers of six and eight-legged creatures.

Amy Stewart’s appearance is made possible by a collaboration of the North Museum of Natural History & Science, the Eiserer-Hickey Foundation, and the Franklin & Marshall Philadelphia Alumni Writers House. Accommodations provided by Lancaster Arts Hotel.

This event is open to the public.

Free; no tickets required.
