#var:page_name# cover

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome science writer Juli Berwald, who will sign and discuss her new book, "Spineless: The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Spineless" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Juli Berwald’s journey into the world of jellyfish is a personal one. Over a decade ago she left the sea and her scientific career behind to raise a family in landlocked Austin, Texas. Increasingly dire headlines drew her back to jellies, as unprecedented jellyfish blooms toppled ecosystems and collapsed the world’s most productive fisheries. Berwald’s desire to understand jellyfish takes her on a scientific odyssey. Gracefully blending personal memoir with crystal-clear distillations of science, "Spineless" reveals that jellyfish are a bellwether for the damage we’re inflicting on the climate and the oceans and a call to realize our collective responsibility for the planet we share.
