“Your Inner Fish: A Journey Into the 3.5 Billion Year History of the Human Body,” became a best seller and was named the best book of the year by the National Academy of Sciences.

Shubin is a professor at the University of Chicago and is also a popular science writer and host of the three-part PBS series “Your Inner Fish”, which won an Emmy Award. He has been widely celebrated for discovering the fossil fish dubbed as the missing link between fish and land animals, after searching the world for rocks of the age and type that might contain the such fossils.

Shubin divides his time between homes in both Chicago and Wellfleet.

Tickets $20 at the Wellfleet Library or at the door. Doors open at 6:30.
