Americans love to chow down on lobster and shrimp, but in other parts of the world, people dine on these arthropods' land-based cousins as well.

Join us for a public conversation and optional sampling of traditional delicacies as bug breeder Chelsea Thomas and comic artist Blue Delliquanti discuss raising insects for the table and writing a graphic novel about love in the time of grasshopper tacos.
