CANCELLED: Everett Reads! Keynote featuring Sy Montgomery

Saturday, February 9, 2019

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Due to weather conditions, this event will be rescheduled for a later date.

Nationally bestselling author Sy Montgomery has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Rwanda, hunted by a tiger in India, and swum with piranhas, electric eels and pink dolphins in the Amazon. Her work has taken her from the cloud forest of Papua New Guinea (for a book on tree kangaroos) to the Altai Mountains of the Gobi (for another on snow leopards.) For The Soul of an Octopus (a National Book Award finalist) she befriended octopuses at the New England aquarium and scuba dived and snorkeled with wild octopuses in Mexico and French Polynesia; next she drew on her scuba skills to cage dive with great white sharks.

Join us at the Everett Performing Arts Center for our keynote Everett Reads! event with Sy Mongtomery.  Books will be sold and signed at this free event. Immediately following the presentation, all are welcome to a reception hosted by the Friends of the Everett Public Library.
