On Monday, September 20 at 7 p.m. the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with Mary Roach, author of Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law, an irresistible investigation into the unpredictable world where wildlife and humans meet. A Publishers Weekly starred review calls Fuzz an “eminently entertaining outing” and notes, “Roach’s writing is wry, full of heart, and loaded with intriguing facts.”
Combining little-known forensic science and conservation genetics with a motley cast of laser scarecrows, langur impersonators, and trespassing squirrels, Roach reveals as much about humanity as about nature’s lawbreakers. When it comes to "problem" wildlife, she finds, humans are more often the problem?and the solution. Fascinating, witty, and humane, Fuzz offers hope for compassionate coexistence in our ever-expanding human habitat.
Roach is the author of New York Times bestselling works of nonfiction, including Grunt, Stiff, Gulp, Bonk, Spook, and Packing for Mars. She has written for National Geographic, Wired, and The New York Times Magazine, among others, and her TED talk made the TED 20 Most Watched list. ?
Copies of Fuzz will be available for purchase courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Registration for this program is required and a valid email address is required at time of registration. Participants will receive an email invitation to attend the program, hosted on Zoom, a day before the program begins.
