In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, how do the relationships between humans, non-human animals, and landscapes influence public health?

Join Wake Forest’s Office of Sustainability and co-sponsoring departments on Tuesday, February 13th at 5:30pm in Brendle Recital Hall for Tracing Threads from Art to Science, from Ebola to the Serengeti Lion with award-winning science writer David Quammen. Quammen’s 18 books include his 2012 work of nonfiction, Spillover, which predicted how a virus originating in non-human animals would soon spill over to humans and spread across the globe.

Following the lecture and Q&A, a variety of Quammen’s books will be available for purchase and signing. A pre-event reception will take place in the lobby beginning at 4:30pm.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
