Mary Roach, author of FUZZ, in virtual conversation with Roman Mars
Monday, September 27, 2021 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The acclaimed science writer Mary Roach, author of Stiff, Bonk, and Gulp, now brings us FUZZ: When Nature Breaks the Law, an irresistible investigation into the unpredictable world where wildlife and humans meet. Co-hosted with Boswell Book Company.
For this event, Mary Roach will be in virtual conversation on Zoom with Roman Mars, host and creator of 99% Invisible and author of The 99% Invisible City.
What’s to be done about a jaywalking moose? A grizzly bear caught breaking and entering? A murderous tree? As Mary Roach discovers, the answers are best found not in jurisprudence but in science: the curious science of human-wildlife conflict, a discipline at the crossroads of human behavior and wildlife biology.
Roach tags along with animal attack forensics investigators, human-elephant conflict specialists, and bear managers. Along the way, Roach reveals as much about humanity as about nature’s lawbreakers. Combining little-known forensic science and conservation genetics with a motley cast of laser scarecrows, langur impersonators, and mugging macaques, Fuzz offers hope for compassionate coexistence in our ever-expanding human habitat.
