Join us for an evening with David Waltner-Toews, author, veterinary epidemiologist and university professor emeritus at the University of Guelph as he discusses his new book A Conspiracy of Chickens: A Memoir.

David Waltner-Toews is the author of many scholarly books and articles, and has also published six books of poetry, a collection of recipes and dramatic monologues, a collection of short stories, two novels and various books of popular science including On Pandemics: Deadly Diseases from Bubonic Plague to Coronavirus; The Origin of Feces: What Excrement Tells Us About Evolution, Ecology and a Sustainable Society; Eat the Beetles: An Exploration into our Conflicted Relationship with Insects and Food. His nonfiction books have won awards in the US and Canada, and have been published in Japanese, French, Chinese and Arabic.

In his new memoir, Waltner-Toews shares not only his joys and misadventures with the chickens, but also reflects our history and relationship with chickens, with the urban animals surrounding us and with the ecosystem that contains us all. Funny, wise and thought-provoking, A Conspiracy of Chickens is a book that takes chickens seriously and asks the reader to do the same.

In collaboration with Words Worth Books.
