Join us for a fun filled Sunday afternoon for all the family, with authors and dynamic dinosaur duo, Anne and Steve Brusatte! With something for aspiring paleontologists young and old, Anne and Steve will talk about their newest books, Dugie the Dinosaur and The Rise and Reign of the Mammals.

About the Books:

Dugie The Dinosaur: Scotland's Sauropod

Scotland – 170 million years ago – The Jurassic Period! Dugie is a long-necked dinosaur who lives on the Isle of Skye. When he is separated from his family by a storm he needs the help of some new friends to get back to the safety of his lagoon. A story of bravery, friendship and dinosaurs! Based on real-life fossils discoveries from the Isle of Skye, Dugie the Dinosaur is the first children's book on Scottish dinosaurs.

The Rise and Reign of the Mammals : A New History, from the Shadow of the Dinosaurs to Us

In The Rise and Reign of the Mammals, Steve Brusatte weaves together the history and evolution of our mammal forebears with stories of the scientists whose fieldwork and discoveries underlie our knowledge, both of iconic mammals like the mammoths and sabre-toothed tigers of which we have all heard, and of fascinating species that few of us are aware of. The Rise and Reign of the Mammals is a pop-science book that follows our ancestors as they navigated 325 million years of evolution, asteroids and volcanoes and ice ages, to produce us and the thousands of other mammals of today, from bats to whales to elephants.

About the Authors:

Anne Brusatte was born in Bristol, England, lived in New York City for several years but now calls Edinburgh home. She taught primary school for over ten years in two countries and is very used to children knowing far more about dinosaurs than she ever will. Dugie the Dinosaur is her first book.

Steve Brusatte is a paleontologist who hunts and writes about dinosaurs. He is on the faculty of the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, but grew up in the Midwestern USA. Steve has traveled around the world digging up dinosaurs and, working with many international colleagues, has named more than 15 new species, including the tyrannosaur ‘Pinocchio rex’ (Qianzhousaurus) and the raptor Zhenyuanlong. He has written several books for kids and adults, most notably the adult pop science book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs (2018), which was a New York Times bestseller in the USA, Sunday Times bestseller in the UK, and Globe & Mail bestseller in Canada. His work is covered often by the popular press and he has appeared on several television shows, such as the National Geographic extravaganza T. rex Autopsy, where he was part of the team that dissected a scientifically accurate life-sized model of a T. rex.
