Elena Passarello, author of Animals Strike Curious Poses
Please join us on Friday, October 27th at 7pm for a wonderful event with author and Whiting Award recipient Elena Passarello.
"I’ve spent decades reading books on the roles animals play in human cultures, but none have ever made me think, and feel, as much as this one. It’s a devastating meditation on our relationship to the natural world. It might be the best book on animals I’ve ever read. It’s also the only one that’s made me laugh out loud." --Helen Macdonald, The New York Times Book Review
Beginning with Yuka, a 39,000 year old mummified woolly mammoth recently found in the Siberian permafrost, each of the 16 essays in Animals Strike Curious Poses investigates a different famous animal named and immortalized by humans. Modeled loosely after a medieval bestiary, these witty, playful, whipsmart essays traverse history, myth, science, and more, bringing each beast vibrantly to life.
The event is limited to 40 attendees. Elena will sign books at the end of the event. There are two ticket options (ticket-only and ticket+book). You have the option to reserve multiple tickets and purchase multiple copies of the book. Your confirmation serves as your RSVP and your book(s) will be available to pick up at the event.
