Reporting: Rabbit Zielke
Juliet Eilperin is an environmental reporter with the Washington Post and author of Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks. Her book takes a look at the history of mankind’s interaction with these deep sea predators from the honored status of gods to the modern image of a feared predator. Sharks have been hunted to near extinction for sport, food, or out of an unrealistic fear of a cold blooded killer. Through Demon Fish, Eilperin takes the reader along with her as she travels the globe and looks at the world of the misunderstood shark. Juliet Eilperin is the guest speaker at the Tennessee Aquarium on November 17, 2011 from 7:00 to 9:30 pm.
