Mary Ellen Hannibal at the Butcher’s Table

Environmentalist and award-winning author Mary Ellen Hannibal will be discussing her latest book Citizen Scientist at the Butcher’s Table Wednesday, October 5 at 12pm as part of their Speaker Series. Guests will receive prefixed lunch menu and beverage at this event. Customers with dietary restrictions please email event address with specific details.
In Citizen Scientist Hannibal traces today’s tech-enabled citizen science movement to its roots: the centuries-long tradition of amateur observation by writers and naturalists. Prompted by her novelist father’s sudden death, she also examines her own past—and discovers a family legacy of looking closely at the world. With unbending zeal for protecting the planet, she then turns her gaze to the wealth of species left to fight for.
