March 5th – Eugenia Bone – Microbia: A journey into the unseen world
While nature writer Eugenia Bone was writing Mycophilia, her critically acclaimed book about mushrooms, she became fascinated with the larger questions about the unseen side of nature. She wanted to better understand what she intuitively knew – that microbes are
what connect us all, to each other and to the Earth. And so begins Bone’s quest to discover the hidden world of microbes in her illuminating and entertaining memoir, MICROBIA: A Journey into the Unseen World Around You.
