BeetlesThroughout history, humans have used beetles as medicinal remedies, eaten them roasted or skewered, made them into brilliantly patterned jewelry, kept them as pets, and much more.

As the largest, and one of the most successful and enduring groups of animals in the world, beetles have many lessons to offer. To learn more about these fascinating creatures, join Dr. Art Evans for a talk and signing for his book An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles, this Thursday, September 17 at 7PM, at The Bone Room in Berkeley.

Evans is also co-author, with James N. Hogue, of Introduction to California Beetles and Field Guide to Beetles of California.

The Bone Room is located at 1573 Solano Ave., Berkeley, CA, 94707.
