Instagram LIVE Event - Lulu Miller - Why Fish Don't Exist
Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 2:30pm

Join Radiolab cohost and author Lulu Miller for an afternoon chat with our bookseller Jane Alice about the paperback release of her book, Why Fish Don't Exist: A Story of Loss, Love, and the Hidden Order of Life!

Why Fish Don't Exist is a dark and astonishing tale of love, chaos, scientific obsession, and possibly even murder. The book focuses on taxonomist David Starr Jordan's obsession with discovering every species of fish known to man, and his journey to continuing his work after losing his collection to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake--which sent more than a thousand discoveries, housed in fragile jars, plummeting to the floor. Part biography, part memoir, part scientific adventure, Miller's nonfiction debut is a wondrous fable about how to persevere in a world where chaos will always prevail.

Lulu Miller is the cohost of Radiolab, cofounder of NPR’s Invisibilia, and a Peabody Award–winning science journalist. Her writing has been published in The New YorkerVQROrionElectric LiteratureCatapult, and beyond. Her favorite spot on earth is Humpback Rocks.
