Americans love to chow down on lobster and shrimp, but in other parts of the world, people dine on these arthropods' land-based cousins as well. Insects are delicious and nutritious staples, yet an outdated taboo makes us get all squirmy at the thought of it. Curious about broadening your palette? Join us for a public conversation and optional sampling of traditional delicacies as bug breeder Chelsea Thomas and comic artist Blue Delliquanti discuss raising insects for the table and writing a graphic novel about love in the time of grasshopper tacos.
