Writer Amy Stewart has written playful, well-researched books including The Earth Moved, Flower Confidential, Wicked Plants, and, now, Wicked Bugs. She is currently serving as Tin House’s inaugural Writer-in-Residence at PSU, where she is teaching writing. (Check out her blog, where she shares stories about living and writing in Portland!)

Her upcoming book, The Drunken Botanist, will be a natural history of the endless number of plants humans have managed to turn into alcohol. If you can possibly make it to tonight’s talk, do it!
