Cruisin' the Fossil Freeway

Posted by: Rebecca Durkin

What do you get when you take one Seattle-born paleontologist, add one wacky Northwest artist, stick ‘em in a pick-up truck, and set them off on an adventure? Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway, the new book by Kirk Johnson and Ray Troll, takes us on an “epoch” journey across the western states at 65 mph in search of fossils.

The hilarious duo will be reading from their new book and signing copies at the Burke tonight at 7 pm – tickets are $5 at the door and free to members.

Want a taste of what you’re in for? Check out their brief interview on NPR’s All Things Considered, discussing “Jurassic Pork” and “PNS” (Paleo Nerd Syndrome). Then join us tonight for the real scoop!
