Join the Florida Museum of Natural History and Alachua County Library District for the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read, a series of events building community while lifting the voices of women in science! This special evening, presented in partnership with Guts & Glory GNV, is a FREE virtual event featuring personal and true stories told by real scientists!

Science is never perfect, it can be unpredictable, hilarious and fun! Join us via Zoom for a night of storytelling, science and fun.

The theme, #FieldworkFail, is based off of the trending social media hashtag turned book about the reality and randomness of scientific fieldwork.
