Advanced Tickets are encouraged as space is limited

Jon Mooallem and Laurel Braitman share a focus on the link between animals and humans. Mooallem’s book Wild Ones reports from the front lines of endangered species conservation with wry humor and historical perspective. While in Animal Madness Braitman, who has a PhD in the history and anthropology of science from MIT, looks at attitudes toward mental health in animals and people over time.

Their collaborative presentation will cover each of their books, lots of animals, their similarities and differences as natural history detectives, and more. Tickets are still available. But, like all our Interval salon talks, space is limited and we expect it will sell out.
