    • Event Name: The Species Seekers - Author talk by Richard Conniff
      "Richard Conniff talk is at 4 pm"
      Comment posted by: MuseumGoer from Cambridge, MA, Nov 14, 2011

      This should be a wonderful talk, by a renowned author, but note the starting time is at 4 pm, but come early to see all the new exhibitions in the museum.
