Chirp! Chirp! Stories from the fascinating world of insects – Frank Nischk talks, Gustav Peter Wöhler reads.


Some say Jean-Henri Fabre and his texts would have been worthy of the Nobel Prize for literature. The great French author, inventor and naturalist (1823–1915) was a pioneer of nature writing and a devoted observer of the not-always-friendly miniature world of our six-legged friends: insects. On his sprawling property in southern France, he researched the fascinating behaviour of insects and described it as nobody had done before. He was a pioneer in both biology and literature. The final book of his ten-volume works has just appeared in German translation, to acclaim from the newspaper arts and culture pages. Gustav Peter Wöhler will read his most beautiful stories. Zoologist Frank Nischk (“The Fabulous World of Nasty Creatures: About Caring Cockroaches, Diving Dragonflies and Boxing Crabs”) will report on Fabre’s adventures and the unfamiliar and incredible microcosm of insects.
