Book Talk: Beaverland: How One Weird Rodent Made America
Join Cary Institute for an in-person and virtual book talk featuring author Leila Philip. In conversation with Cary President Dr. Joshua Ginsberg, Philip will discuss her new book: Beaverland: How One Weird Rodent Made America.
In Beaverland, Philip reveals the profound ways in which one animal and the trade surrounding it have shaped history, culture, and our environment. And she tells the ecological story of how this unusual rodent, once trapped to the point of extinction, has returned to the landscape as one of the greatest conservation stories of the twentieth century.
This event is free and open to all. Please register via Eventbrite.
The in-person portion of the event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration is required.
Books will be available for purchase from Merritt Bookstore.
