Join us for an evening with Amy Stewart, worm enthusiast and author of “The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms.” In the tradition of the bestselling The Botany of Desire comes this fascinating exploration of the underground world of one of its most amazing denizens. The earthworm may be small, spineless, and blind, but its role in the ecosystem is profound. It tills the soil, destroys microscopic organisms that cause plant disease, breaks down toxins, and turns the ground into rich compost, creating the most fertile areas on earth. In her witty and offbeat style, Amy Stewart shows just how much depends on the humble worm. Come be amazed at just how fascinating worms can be!
