Arcadia Book Club discusses "Fuzz" by Mary Roach
Wednesday October 20, 2021 | 6:00PM - 7:00PM
This is a virtual Zoom event.
Please register here.
Mary Roach has been called "America's funniest science writer". Her past research topics have been death, the military, sex, the afterlife and the alimentary canal. Funny stuff, right? In Mary Roach's hands the answer is yes, it is funny stuff. In her newest book, Fuzz, Roach explores the conflict between humans and wildlife and lays out a plan for friendly coexistence, even has humans push farther in wild habitats.
Hilarious! With Fuzz, Mary Roach again takes us into an unfamiliar scientific realm, in this case the science of managing the conflicts between humans and the natural world—lethal leopards, rampaging elephants, jet-downing birds, even killer trees. It’s an ever-widening conflict zone, but one that Ms. Roach gleefully mines for a multitude of bizarre facts that’ll make you snort coffee through your nose. —Erik Larson, bestselling author of The Splendid and the Vile
