Life, Love, and Connection – A Book


Friends, friends.

You love animals. You love moving and compelling stories. You love learning. You love your community. I know this. I’ve met lots of you. If you think what I’ve said is true, then come out on Thursday, October 10, 2013 for a special reading of Kindred BeingsWhat Seventy-Three Chimpanzees Taught Me About Life, Love, and Connection, with Dr. Sheri Speede.

Dr. Speede is the founder and director of In Defense of Animals-Africa and Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center. She will be in our town, at our local book store, Elliot Bay Book Co. sharing her story, her book, and her experiences with the Chimps at Sanaga-Yong. If you are a National Geographic reader or were paying attention in the fall of 2010, you may know Dr. Speede from a photo that went viral of the funeral of Dorothy, that touched so many people who saw it. Dorothy’s story is heart wrenching and eventually heart warming. Each of the chimp’s stories are special.

So open yourself to their stories and the meaning of promises kept. Join Dr. Speede, others from In Defense of Animals, book lovers, chimpanzee advocates, and other Seattle folks at 7:00 pm in the downstairs reading room at Elliot Bay Book Co (back by the cafe).

Even Jane Goodall thinks you should go. Who are you to ignore her advice?

“All who read this book will be deeply moved! Sheri’s words will bring a tear to all but the hardest of hearts. And a lot of smiles as well!” – Jane Goodall

Be there.
