Powell's on Hawthorne

Sure, they may look adorable wearing a three-piece suit and pretending to operate a telephone, but chimpanzees are capable of a wider range of emotions than we give them credit for (not the least of which must surely be indignation). Sheri Speede, who spent 13 years living in Cameroon and founded In Defense of Animals-Africa, will share insights from her experiences and her new book, Kindred Beings: What 73 Chimpanzees Taught Me about Life, Love and Connection.

Where: Powell's on Hawthorne
Phone: (800) 878-7323
Address: 3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
