OSU Authors & Editors Celebration

George Poinar

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Each year, OSU faculty publish a remarkable range of books. Join us as we celebrate the work of OSU authors and editors with a reception and a talk by George Poinar, an entomologist and writer in the OSU College of Science. Best known for his research on plants and animals trapped in amber that inspired the DNA extraction science in Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, Poinar will be talking about his new book, A Naturalist’s Guide to the Hidden World of Pacific Northwest Dunes (OSU Press). This event is part of OSU’s Recognizing Excellence series, sponsored by the OSU Provost’s office, and hosted by the Center for the Humanities. Wednesday, May 17, 6:30 p.m. Autzen House, 811 SW Jefferson.
