Description

“LIFE AT THE ZOO” BOOK RELEASE WITH PHOTOGRAPHER AND AUTHOR MICHAEL GEORGE

Have you wondered what life at the zoo is really like? With breathtaking original images from a National Geographic photographer, this book gives a unique behind-the-scenes view. This is the perfect book for every budding zoologist and animal-loving kid! Featuring illuminating photography and writing from Michael George, Life at the Zoo provides a precious glimpse inside the beloved institution. Children can meet the creatures who live there—and the people who care for them, too.

On Sunday, November 11th, at 5 pm in Millbrook School’s Holbrook Arts Center join us for a special presentation with photographer and author Michael George. Michael will share photos and stories from his brand new book, featuring eight different zoos, aquariums, and conservation centers around the US and abroad, including the Trevor Zoo!

“The narrative takes kids for a behind-the-scenes look at everything that happens at the Zoo that they don’t get to see. When I first worked with a zoo for a travel shoot in 2015, I realized how many misconceptions and worries people have about how they work, and what they do. The book explores conservation, breeding, research, and rescue programs. I answer questions like: Where do zoo babies come from? How do you train a vicious carnivore? Why do we need zoos in the first place?”

This event is free and open to zoo lovers of all ages. Life at the Zoo retails for $12.95 and will be available for sale and after the lecture.

Michael George is a photographer and writer whose work has appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times, Popular Mechanics, Teen Vogue, WIRED, and more. He guest lectured at Yale University and taught workshops internationally. Michael lives in Brooklyn, NY. Learn more at michaelgeorgephoto.com and follow him on Instagram @MichaelGeorge.
