Russian American author Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) is probably best known for his novels, especially "Lolita (1955)." But Nabokov was also an entomologist and a celebrated butterfly illustrator. USU biologists Zach Gompert and Lauren Lucas will discuss Nabokov's unique scientific and artistic contributions at Science Unwrapped Friday, Jan. 26, at 7 pm in the Eccles Science Learning Center Emert Auditorium for the kick-off of the program's Spring 2018 "The Science of Art" Series. Admission is free!
