If you're in the Seattle area, come here me talk about my book The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of Longing this Saturday night (February 9th) at Elliot Bay Books.
I'll be talking about how I came to write the book that I did, and I'll dabble into a few stories like the taxidermy bonfires and the shrunken skins of man-eating lions.
Talk begins at 7pm. Hope to see you there!
