October 20th 

Naturalist Book Club

Join us as we discuss Neil Shubin’s book “Your Inner Fish”

 

Join us for a lively discussion of this fascinating book.

“Neil Shubin, the paleontologist and professor of anatomy who co-discovered Tiktaalik, the “fish with hands,” tells the story of our bodies as you’ve never heard it before. This book has been the basis for the PBS series.

 

By examining fossils and DNA, he shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our heads are organized like long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genomes look and function like those of worms and bacteria. Your Inner Fish makes us look at ourselves and our world in an illuminating new light. This is science writing at its finest—enlightening, accessible and told with irresistible enthusiasm.”
