Description

Zombieism isn’t just the stuff of movies and TV. It’s happening all around us, from wasps and worms to dogs and moose...even humans. In Plight of the Living Dead: What Real-Life Zombies Reveal About Our World—and Ourselves, science journalist Matt Simon infects ants with zombifying fungi, searches for kamikaze crickets in New Mexico, and meets the Israeli wasp that stings cockroaches in the brain before leading them to their doom. In conversation with science journalist Susan Freinkel (Plastic: A Toxic Love Story). FREE, $5 suggested donation
