If you have been searching for fun intellectuals who like to read about natural history related topics, you have come to the right place. Our Book and Tour group participants read interesting natural history books and enjoy FREE related museum tours throughout the year. After our tours, we will enjoy food, cocktails, or the beverages of your choice in The Café Carnegie and discuss the tour and the book.
Meet the author, Elisabeth Tova Bailey who wrote the critically acclaimed book—The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating via Skype and join our Book and Tour group for a special tour of Mollusks hidden collection with Dr. Timothy Pearce.
Bailey’s 2016 book shares her intimate story of her incapacitating illness, her encounter with a woodland snail that took up residence on her bedside table, and her wonder and discovery of her own place in the natural world. You will have the opportunity via Skype to discuss the book with Bailey and ask questions.
Carnegie Museum of Natural History Assistant Curator Dr. Tim Pearce consulted with Bailey while she was writing the book and will take the Book and Tour group on a free, special behind-the-scenes tour in the Section of Mollusks and discuss his contribution to the book. Following that we will have a Skype session with the author Elisabeth Tova Bailey!
