Bookmarked: Jeff VanderMeer’s "Annihilation"After Five, Lectures & Discussions, Shopping/Book Signing
Thursday, April 13, 2023, 6:30 – 8:30pm EDT
Join the National Museum of Natural History for a pre-Earth Day celebration with bestselling author Jeff VanderMeer for a night of (un)natural history with his book Annihilation. In a conversation moderated by writer and educator Rebecca Roberts, VanderMeer discusses environmental storytelling, the importance of personal connections to nature, the “VanderWild” world of rewilding, and the biological touchpoints of Annihilation.
After the conversation, stay for the book signing, chat with Amanda Davis from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library about Annihilation, and explore the strange creatures of “Area Q,” (Southern Reach “Area X”-esque specimen from our collections on display in the Q?rius Education Center).
Books will be available for purchase at our bookstore, which will remain open for exclusive after-hours access from 6:00pm-8:30pm.
