Durham ecologist and science writer, Rob Dunn, will read from his new book, The Wild Life of Our Bodies, as part of the Museum of Life and Science’s Periodic Tables series. Our increasing obsession with cleanliness, antibacterials, and scrubbing the nature off of our bodies appears to be the cause of many chronic diseases that have come to plague Western countries today. In The Wild Life of Our Bodies, Rob Dunn traces how humans have distanced themselves from interaction with other species and explores the often debilitating consequences. Dunn is a professor in the department of biology at North Carolina State University and author of the award-winning book Every Living Thing. (LiteraryFiction)
