Adventurer, naturalist, and prize-winning author Sy Montgomery (who the Boston Globe once called “part Indiana Jones and part Emily Dickinson”) has traveled the world researching some of the planet’s rarest and most fascinating animals. In How to Be a Good Creature, Sy shares the lessons of empathy, compassion, and character imparted by the many good creatures she’s met along the way, including a Scottish terrier, a trio of emus, a pet pig, an Amazonian tarantula, a collie, and an octopus. Rejuvenating and deeply personal, Sy’s book explores the unique lens our animal teachers can provide into a worldview of acceptance, forgiveness, and gratitude, to foster connections across species and beyond. Sy reads and discusses her book at Greenlight in conversation with fellow author Eliot Schrefer.
