York Graduate Center 101
Ault’s recently released debut book invites readers into serious appreciation of Darwinian histories by deploying the playful thinking found in children’s books.
Essays focusing on the origins of tetrapods, elephants, whales, and birds explain fundamental Darwinian concepts with examples of fossil history and comparative anatomy. By juxtaposing Darwin’s science with tales for children, Do Elephants Have Knees? underscores the importance of whimsical storytelling to the accomplishment of serious thinking.
The book is illustrated by Jan Glenn, who has worked for many years as an art educator in the MAT program at Lewis & Clark.
Ault will speak about his latest work and discuss related topics with attendees. Please join us!
Date and Time: Thursday, October 20, 5-6:30 p.m.
Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate School, York 101
