Wordfest Presents: Susan Casey, Voices in the Ocean

Susan Casey is the former editor in chief of O, The Oprah Magazine and the author of New York Times bestseller The Devil’s Teeth: A True Story of Obsession and Survival Among America’s Great White Sharks. At this special Wordfest event, Susan Casey presents her new book, Voices in the Ocean, followed by an audience Q&A and book signing.

Inspired by her experience swimming with wild dolphins off the coast of Maui, Susan Casey has set out on a quest to learn everything she could about these creatures. Her journey takes her from a community in Hawaii known as “Dolphinville,” where the animals are seen as the key to spiritual enlightenment, to the dark side of the human-cetacean relationship at marine parks and dolphin-hunting grounds in Japan and the Solomon Islands, to the island of Crete, where the Minoan civilization lived in harmony with dolphins, providing a millennia-old example of a more enlightened coexistence with the natural world.
