Her debut book, Venomous: How Earth's Deadliest Creatures Mastered Biochemistry (Scientific American/FSG Books) hit shelves August 9th. Dr. Wilcox will be signing books at the Waikiki Aquarium Family Night on August 26th and at an event at the Ala Moana Barnes and Noble at 1:00 pm on September 3rd.
