What on Earth Are They Saying

Talk

WHEN Sunday, October 4, 2020
6:30-8pm WHERE Zoom Webinar WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

Award-winning author and journalist Charles Siebert discusses his many experiences visiting with, and writing about, non-human animals, and what they reveal to us about themselves and us. Through his interludes with everyone from a former cellist in an all-chimpanzee circus orchestra; to an octopus escape artist; to elephant and whale ventriloquists; to traumatized orphaned parrots who heal equally traumatized war veterans, Siebert introduces us to the animal within all humans; the common biology and languages we share with other beings; and the costs of failing to ask "What On Earth Are They Saying."
