In the Exploratorium Story Corner: Spitting Twins, by Andrea Jones

Sunday, November 13, 2005, 1pm

Some animals and reptiles have good reason to spit, but when children do it, it's just a nasty habit. First-time author and mother of twins Andrea Jones will read from her book, The Spitting Twins, and talk about which animals spit with good reason and why. For families with children ages four and up. This event takes place in the PlayLab at the Exploratorium and is free with museum admission.

Andrea Jones divides her time between her husband, her twin boys, and her job with a thriving dot-com company in Volcano, California, in the foothills of the Sierra. The Spitting Twins is her first book.
