This Meetup is past

8 people went


In May, 2008, our book group enjoyed reading “Your Inner Fish,” by Paleobiologist Neil Shubin, exploring how our anatomy is shaped by our ancient animal ancestors. This year PBS has produced a fascinating three-part presentation of his work (, exploring what our ancient ancestors can tell us about our modern bodies. At our May Humanist Conversations meeting, we will watch and discuss the third and final episode of this series, entitled “Your Inner Monkey,” in which Shubin takes us on an odyssey of our primate ancestors to introduce us to ourselves. Refreshments will be served.
