Diana Reiss, a leading expert in dolphin intelligence, will discuss and sign her new book, "The Dolphin in the Mirror: Exploring Dolphin Minds and Saving Dolphin Lives," on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. at Kepler's, 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.
In "The Dolphin in the Mirror" Ms. Reiss combines her science and activism to show just how smart dolphins really are and why we must stop mistreating them. She also reveals their sophisticated lifelong creativity and playfulness, their emotional intelligence, their level of self-awareness, and their ability to communicate with humans.
The author is a professor of psychology at Hunter College in New York City and director of dolphin research at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. She is also adjunct faculty in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology at Columbia University, and she serves as a member of the Animal Welfare Committee of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
General admission requires the purchase of the book or a $10 gift card, either of which covers admission for two. Admission for members is free.
