FREE Hugh Raffles Reads about Bugs
The first time I went to the Natural History Museum at the Smithsonian, I spent about thirty seconds looking at the Hope Diamond. Then I went and spent at least a half an hour staring at bugs in glass tanks. Don’t get me wrong, I love shiny things. But I was always the kind of kid who would rather stare at a shiny beetle than a diamond. Actually, I’m that kind of adult too. If you’re also the kind of person who likes to stare at bugs, you should go hear Hugh Raffles read from his new book, The Insectopedia at McNally Jackson Bookstore tomorrow night. His book explores the history of people’s fascination and disgust with insects. So if you want to hear about how amateur entymology is all the rage in Japan, this is a reading for you.
