Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic
Award-winning science writer David Quammen (The Song of the Dodo) tells the fascinating story of how organisms jump from animals to humans, bringing with them such terrifying diseases as SARS, Ebola, and AIDS.
Join him for a discussion of his new book of Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic, in which he recounts his adventures with leading disease scientists as they field-net bats in China, trap monkeys in Bangladesh, and stalk gorillas in the Congo. All in a quest to learn how and why diseases emerge – and what the next big pandemic might be.
