Charles Foster on BEING A HUMAN
Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome author and scholar Charles Foster to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating his latest book, Being a Human on Thursday, September 16th at 1pm MT. He'll be in conversation with Cal Flyn (Islands of Abandonment), and will be joining us all the way from England! The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.
How did humans come to be who we are? In his marvelous, eccentric, and widely lauded book Being a Beast, legal scholar, veterinary surgeon, and naturalist extraordinaire Charles Foster set out to understand the consciousness of animal species by living as a badger, otter, fox, deer, and swift. Now, he inhabits three crucial periods of human development to understand the consciousness of perhaps the strangest animal of all—the human being. Drawing on psychology, neuroscience, natural history, agriculture, medical law and ethics, Being a Human is one man’s audacious attempt to feel a connection with 45,000 years of human history. This glorious, fiercely imaginative journey from our origins to a possible future ultimately shows how we might best live on earth—and thrive.
Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
