Book Signing with Photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur on 10/6/2017

Join NEAVS for a special evening as we host a book signing with award-winning photojournalist, Jo-Anne McArthur to discuss her new book, Captive. 

Friday, October 6th, 7 PM - 8:30 PM 

Jabberwocky Bookshop
50 Water Street, Ste 22
Newburyport, MA 01950

Released in August 2017, Captive "is a book that will challenge our preconceptions about zoos and aquaria, animal welfare, and just what or who it is we think we see when we face the animal...As with her first book, We Animals (Lantern, 2013), McArthur's aim is to invite us to reflect on how we observe or ignore one another through the bars, across the moat, or on either side of the glass." (

After a brief presentation/Q&A to start off the evening, Jo-Anne will have copies of Captive and We Animals available for purchase. Plus if you'd like a signed copy for yourself or to give someone special, Jo-Anne will be more than happy to do so!

It's not every Friday night you have the opportunity meet the international, award-winning photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur, so we hope to see you at Jabberwocky Bookshop on Friday 10/6!

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP on Facebook or simply stop by!
