Marc Bekoff to Speak at Book Signing in Boulder, CO

Vic's Espresso Rider Marc Bekoff to speak at the Boulder Bookstore this evening.

Marc Bekoff is a well-known Animal Behaviorist and has written a new book titled Wild Justice: the Moral lives of Animals. Marc will be speaking about his latest book this evening along with co-author Jessica Pierce. Come listen to Marc share his research and writings beginning at 7:30pm Wednesday, May 13th. Both Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce will be available after to sign copies.

Here is a short description of Marc's new book as it appeared in the Events Calendar for the Boulder Bookstore:

... Animals, in short, are incredibly adept social beings, relying on rules of conduct to navigate intricate social networks that are essential to their survival. Ultimately, Bekoff and Pierce draw the astonishing conclusion that there is no moral gap between humans and other species: morality is an evolved trait that we unquestionably share with other social mammals. ... "Wild Justice" offers not just cutting-edge science, but a provocative call to rethink our relationship with--and our responsibilities toward--our fellow animals.

Marc Bekoff is a member of the local Boulder, Colorado Vic's Espresso/Peerless Cycling Team.
