Science Cafe: Your Friends, the Spiders

  • Thursday, May 24, 2018
  • 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Dr. Eleanor's Book of Common Spiders

Book Release and Discussion

Wherever we are, indoors or outside, none of us is more than four feet from a spider. Spiders are all around us, and are our friends.

Chris Buddle and Eleanor Spicer Rice, authors of “Dr. Eleanor’s Book of Common Spiders,” will celebrate the release of their new book and reveal the uncommon habits of some of the most common creatures around. Chris and Eleanor will reveal the exciting lives of the spiders on your bedroom ceiling spitting sticky nets on pests, the ruthless spider pirates performing hostile takeovers in your basement, and other creatures in your cobwebs.
