Barbara J. King – Personalities on the Plate: The Lives and Minds of the Animals We Eat

Saturday, May 6   |   2:00 pm

In recent years, scientific advances in our understanding of animal minds have led to major changes in how we think about, and treat, animals in zoos and aquariums. The general public, it seems, is slowly coming to understand that animals like apes, elephants, and dolphins have not just brains, but complicated inner and social lives, and that we need to act accordingly.

Saturday, May 13   |   11:00 am

One of Keebe’s favorite books of 2016, now coming out in paperback. For the inimitable Lee Smith, place is paramount.
