The two fascinating books presented here offer insights into animal and human behavior. In Wildhood: The Epic Journey from Adolescence to Adulthood in Humans and Other Animals, the author duo behind bestseller Zoobiquity, Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers, find that the same four challenges face every adolescent and young adult human and animal: safety, status, sex, and self-reliance. How they face those challenges shapes their adult destinies. In Our Dogs, Ourselves: The Story of a Singular Bond, head of the Dog Cognition Lab at Columbia University and bestselling author Alexandra Horowitz presents an entertaining investigation of the relationship between dogs and humans. Come hear these authors give presentations about their amazing work, followed by a convo and Q&A moderated by Tiziana C. Dearing, host of WBUR’s Radio Boston.
