Description

Natural history might just be the biggest indicator of our unnatural future.

Award-winning author, Lisa Margonelli reveals the ingenious brilliance behind termites. From Namibian termite mounds to the Valley’s cutting-edge labs and military think tanks, the leading biologists, tech entrepreneurs, and military scientists in America are devoting a countless amount of research and funding into understanding more about these unique insects.

In her new book, Underbug: An Obsessive Tale of Termites and Technology, the national bestselling author burrows into complex questions that will make you see why.

For example:
Can we harness the termites’ properties to change the world?
Is a termite a unit or a superorganism?
Is it possible to think without having a mind?

Discover the hidden secrets of one of the world’s most underrated insects. Join Margonelli and bestselling author Mary Roach for a mind-expanding evening.
