The Webers will share curious facts and their photos of these species, most of which can be found in their most recent book. A book signing will follow the presentation and limited number of books will be available for a discounted price of $20 each.

They are currently working on a third book tentatively titled A Guide to Native Host Plants for Texas Butterllies.
