The Secret World of Slugs and Snails:
A preeminent expert on the small wonders of the natural world, David George Gordon playfully and thoughtfully sheds light on the fascinating lives of slugs and snails in his most recent book, The Secret World of Slugs and Snails: Life in the Very Slow Lane. Covering everything from a snail's path across the forest floor to the manufacture of synthetic slug slime, Gordon takes us on a journey through the languid and magical world of these charismatic invertebrates

Gordon who has been featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not, National Geographic Kids, The Wall Street Journal and Time magazine, will be giving a one-hour presentaton at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. He'll share his insight about West Coast slugs and snails, their curious behaviors, relationships with native plants and fungi and the many niches they fill in the natural world. He'll also explain how to forge a meaningful and lasting peace with these slimsters and offer tips for controlling their damage to our flower gardens and vegetable plots.

A book signing will follow the talk.



"...a little gem of a book which may make you feel differently about the slimeballs once summer rolls around."
     -Toronto Star

"Combining clever wit with solid science, David George Gordon has produced a most engaging, enlightening, and entertaining treatise on the evolution, anatomy and physiology, and ecological place of snails and slugs."
     -Pacific Horticulture
