About the event

Join us for an evening talk hosted by Oadby and Wigston Local Group.

When Charles Darwin contemplated how best to introduce his controversial new theory of evolution to the general public, he chose to compare it with the selective breeding of domesticated animals. In her new book, Unnatural Selection, marking the 150th anniversary year of Darwin’s great work on domesticated animals Variation under Domestication, author and illustrator Katrina van Grouw explains why this analogy was more appropriate than even Darwin had realised.

Artificial selection is, in fact, more than just an analogy for natural selection – it’s the perfect example of evolution in action.
