JFW at the Brookfield Zoo

Posted in elephant and ivory news, ivory news by JFW on September 20, 2010

I’ll be giving a lecture on ivory and elephants and doing a booksigning at the Brookfield Zoo this coming Tuesday evening as part of their Fall Lecture Series:

“Ivory’s Ghosts”
John Frederick Walker
Tuesday, September 21

“Author Walker spent five years researching the story of ivory’s enormous impact on its most important source–African elephants–and on human history. Today, the question of what to do with growing stockpiles of legitimate ivory from elephants that die of natural causes is at the heart of an ongoing international debate. Join Walker for an exploration of “white gold”–and the future of elephants.”

The lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. in Brookfield Zoo’s Discovery Center.
