Brian Switek: My Beloved Brontosaurus

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 7:00pm
Natural History Museum of Utah, Swaner Forum

Dinosaurs have made large tracks in Brian Switek’s life since he was a child gazing at the Brontosaurus in the halls of the American Museum of Natural History.  Now an acclaimed science writer, Brian explores both the science revolutionizing our understanding of dinosaurs and the role dinosaurs play in our collective imaginations in his new book, My Beloved Brontosaurus: On the Road with Old Bones, New Science, and Our Favorite Dinosaurs.

Join Brian for a discussion of the research that has replaced simpleton monsters with visions of complex, real animals.  Discover how paleontologists are beginning to unlock some of the great puzzles of dinosaur biology, from sex to skin color, and how research at NHMU contributes to these new understandings.

Brian will be signing copies of My Beloved Brontosaurus after the lecture. 
Copies will be available for purchase at the Museum Store.
