Kid's Graphic Novel Book Club
Published on Monday, April 14, 2014 - 10:32am
Once a month kids ages 9 and up get together to eat pizza and discuss a graphic novel. On April 24 at 5 p.m. we'll be talking about Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas by Jim Ottaviani.
Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas: These three ground-breaking researchers were all students of the great Louis Leakey, and each made profound contributions to primatology—and to our own understanding of ourselves.
Tackling Goodall, Fossey, and Galdikas in turn, and covering the highlights of their respective careers, Primates is an accessible, entertaining, and informative look at the field of primatology and at the lives of three of the most remarkable women scientists of the twentieth century.
