A book signing for The Evolution of Beauty: How Darwin’s Forgotten Theory of Mate Choice Shapes the Animal World—and Us follows the program. This event is made possible by The Lowell Institute and a generous donation from Joanie and Tim Ingraham made in memory of beloved ECOC member Dotty Brown. Cosponsored by PEM.
