As Lantern's friend, Ellie Sarty, who's arranging the talk says, Jeffrey lives in New Zealand, so this is a rare opportunity to hear him, and this is his only lecture in New York.
Here's the blurb from the book: Exploring love, joy, anger, fear, shame, compassion, and loneliness, Jeffrey Masson's revolutionary insights about the depth and spectrum of animals' emotional lives sweep aside old prejudices on animal behavior. Drawing from personal experience, scientific studies, animal behaviorists, myth and literature, as well as the stories and observations of animal trainers, veterinarians, and guardians of companion animals, Masson navigates through the rich universe of animal feeling, opening the door to a deeper understanding of animals and changing the way we see them.
