Wilde will read pieces that explore spider bites, arachnid cognition, as well as nursery web and fishing spiders. Participants are welcomed to ask questions.

Wilde lives in Troy, Maine, and writes the Backyard Naturalist column that appears in the Kennebec Journal, Morning Sentinel and Sun Journal newspaper. He has been a college professor, editor, Fulbright scholar, and National Endowment for the Humanities fellow.
