Hudson to host invasive carp event

HUDSON — The St. Croix River Association will host Andrew Reeves, author of "Overrun: Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis" for a reading and conversation on Wednesday, April 10, at Hop and Barrel Brewing in Hudson. Reeves will take a behind-the-scenes look at the heart of the Asian carp crisis in North America. The event will also feature Ron Meador, a veteran journalist for Earth Journal of MinnPost, who will moderate the discussion with Reeves after his presentation. The door opens at 5 p.m. with the program starting at 6 p.m.

"This isn't a book about fish, though they play a leading role. It's a book about us and our reaction to the latest invasive species threatening to become a permanent fixture of the landscape," Reeves said. "It's a book about what winning and losing looks like in the uphill struggle to manage invasive species. And it's a book about how a fish's extraordinary jumping ability propelled it onto the nightly news and the nation's most wanted list."

This is a free event but registration is encouraged, as space is limited. Books will be available to purchase. Food is not available onsite, but may be brought or delivered.

Hop and Barrel Brewing is located at 310 Second St., in Hudson.
