Since Jaws scared a nation of moviegoers out of the water nearly 50 years ago, great white sharks have attained a mythic status as the most frightening and mysterious monsters to still live among us. Each fall just 27 miles off the San Francisco coast, in the waters surrounding a desolate rocky island chain, the world’s largest congregation of these fearsome predators gathers to feed.

Journalist Susan Casey first saw the great whites of the Farallon Islands in a television documentary. Within months she was sitting with two shark scientists in a small motorboat as the sharks—some as long as 20 feet—circled around them. From this first encounter, Casey became obsessed with these awe-inspiring creatures, and a plan was hatched for her to join the scientists and follow their research. Her 2006 book The Devil’s Teeth captured the account of that fateful shark season.

Dive in as Casey offers a presentation full of jaw-dropping images that’s part adventure tale and part natural history lesson. In it, she discusses her time spent among the great whites as well as the latest in great white shark research.
