Bugs and uS
BUGS AND US is a love letter to bugs! I began my research for this book by reading EVERYTHING I could get my hands on about insects, interviewing the top entomologists in the world, and observing insects in my backyard, nature centers, and butterfly gardens. The more I learned, the more I fell in love with these creatures.
Soon after, I finished my research, I enjoyed writing it in a way that I hoped (and still hope) will encourage my readers to fall in love with bugs, too--and want to learn even more!
To celebrate the launch of the book and my undying BUG LOVE, I developed a number of programs surrounding bugs for libraries, museums, and gardens. These included: "You've Got to LUV BUGS!", "Eat, Prey, Larvae", and "BIZ, BAM, BUGS!" and "VOTE FOR BUGS!"
