Reach And Teach is excited to have the authors of Who Is A Chimpanzee coming to our shop to do a book reading and discussion on Tuesday May 5th at 7pm. The Half Moon Bay review wrote a story about the authors and the book that helps tell their story so well that we'll share part of it here (and you can read the rest there).
The authors will read from the book, have a brief discussion and Q&A, and will have the book available for sale and signing. This is a family-friendly event so bring the kids! Light refreshments will be served. FREE
HALF MOON BAY REVIEW STORY:
It all started in La Honda in the 1970s, with Jeff the chimpanzee, bears, bobcats, a mountain lion or two, a wolf, Wally the wallaby and more.
Some of them were there for rehab. But all of them became unofficial but effective educators for the wildlife awareness program School Jungle Safari.
For about a decade, School Jungle Safari, owned and operated by BettyLynn Egan and husband Lou, was populated by animal ambassadors that promoted environmental awareness for endangered species.
The animals and the program aren't there any more, but their legacy will live on with the creation of the first of a planned series of books called "School Jungle Safari Real Safari Tales."
