Join us at Heffers at 6.30pm on 27th May for an evening with Helen Scales, author of Poseidon’s Steed, who will be discussing her new book, Spirals in Time.
More about the book:
Spirals in Time is an exuberant aquatic romp, revealing amazing tales of these undersea marvels. Helen Scales leads us on a journey into their realm, as she goes in search of everything from snails that 'fly' underwater on tiny wings to octopuses accused of stealing shells and giant mussels with golden beards that were supposedly the source of Jason's golden fleece, and learns how shells have been exchanged for human lives, tapped for mind-bending drugs and inspired advances in medical technology. Weaving through these stories are the remarkable animals that build them, creatures with fascinating tales to tell, a myriad of spiralling shells following just a few simple rules of mathematics and evolution.
Tickets for the event are £3 (exc. VAT) and can be purchased above.
