Author Jennifer Skiff to speak at Gibson’s Bookstore next Tuesday

Award-winning journalist and animal advocate Jennifer Skiff (The Divinity of Dogs) will visit Gibson’s Bookstore next Tuesday, Jan. 22, to share a look into the protectors of animals around the world in Rescuing Ladybugs: Inspirational Encounters with Animals That Changed the World, people who didn’t look away from seemingly impossible-to-change situations.

Countless times throughout our lives, we’re presented with a choice to help another soul. Rescuing Ladybugs highlights the true stories of remarkable people who didn’t look away from seemingly impossible-to-change situations and instead worked to save animals. Prepare to be transported to Borneo to release orangutans, Brazil to protect jaguars, Africa to connect with chimpanzees and elephants, the Maldives to free mantas, and Indonesia, the only place where dragons still exist in the wild.

Skiff is an award-winning journalist who traveled the globe as a correspondent for CNN for more than a decade. Passionate about animals and their welfare, she serves as a trustee, adviser and spokesperson for charities around the world while working with lawmakers to create positive change.

The Gibson’s event starts at 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
