Event Overview

Why Fish Don’t Exist is part memoir, part biography, and part fable. Author Lulu Miller’s first book has been critically acclaimed and beloved by readers since its release in April 2020. The book tracks the life and work of David Starr Jordan, a turn-of-the-20th-century taxonomist who made impressive contributions to the field of marine biology—in the form of discovering, formally identifying, and naming numerous fish species—despite repeated setbacks and obstacles. We will convene to discuss the book, raise questions, and share observations in a March 19th webinar attended by special guest Lulu Miller, the cofounder of NPR’s Invisibilia and cohost of RadioLab; her dad, biochemist Christopher Miller; The Scientist's editorial staff; and members of The Scientist Social Club. Before and after the webinar, readers are invited to join the discussion in The Scientist Social Club Facebook Group.

Topics to be covered
  • The process of researching and writing the book
  • What lessons we can draw from the life and work of David Starr Jordan
  • How the story’s arc changed in light of the author’s own life and experiences
