America’s Snake with Ted Levin

On Thursday, November 10 at 6:30 pm Ted Levin will talk about his new book, America’s Snake: The Rise and Fall of the Timber Rattlesnake. America’s Snake takes the reader from labs where the secrets of the snake’s evolutionary history are being unlocked to far-flung habitats whose locations are fiercely protected by biologists and dedicated amateur herpetologists alike. Levin paints a picture of a fascinating creature: peaceable, social, long-lived, and, despite our phobias, not inclined to bite. The timber rattler emerges here as emblematic of America and also, unfortunately, of the complicated, painful struggles involved in protecting and preserving the natural world. Levin is a veteran naturalist and an award-winning author. Book signing to follow.
