Like new grass springing from the remains of a dead animal, decomposition can seem almost…magical. Environmental Educator and Author Anita Sanchez will present from her new book, "Rotten!: Vultures, Beetles, Slime, and Nature's Other Decomposers" Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (2019).

Decomposition isn’t always ugly and disgusting. And, believe it or not, it isn’t always smelly. So unplug your nose! Get ready to take a trip into the world of rotten. Sometimes it’s a gross journey—but not always.

A funny and fact-filled look at decomposition in all of its slimy glory, illustrated with dazzling full-color art by Gilbert Ford. Vultures, fungi, dung beetles, and more aid in this fascinating and sometimes smelly aspect of the life cycle that’s right under our noses.
