Bookworms (Book Club): Science + Love with Primates


Bonobo Handshake: A Memoir of Love and Adventure in the Congo by Vanessa Woods

Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 pm

Most of us know something about chimpanzees, but few of us are well acquainted with bonobos, an endangered ape, with which humans share 98.7 percent of their DNA. Join the group for a discussion of Woods’ study of these animals and her development as a scientist.

This is a book discussion group and participants are strongly encouraged to read the book before attending. Please meet at the Business Reception Desk off Middle Drive.

Reservations: Free. To reserve a place, do it online or call 800-794-7576. Meet at the Business Reception Desk off the Middle Drive entrance.
