Teens Talk Books: Underwater Explorations

Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne, May 2, 11:00 am in Education Classroom

A mysterious sea creature is terrorizing the seas, causing damage to several ships. The United States government organizes an expedition led by a leading French marine biologist, Professor Pierre Aronnax, to find the creature and destroy it. The creature, which turns out to be a submarine manned by the eccentric Capitan Nemo, attacks the expedition’s ship and takes its survivors captive. They end up going on a year-long journey exploring the wonders of the seas. Join us for a lively discussion of this science-fiction classic that was first published in 1870.

Reservations: Free with admission to the museum, but participants should RSVP to the Naturalist Center at 415-379-5494.
