Event description

Description

In this remarkable groundbreaking book, a documentarian and conservationist, determined to dispel misplaced fear and correct common misconceptions, explores in-depth the secret lives of sharks—magnificent creatures who play an integral part in maintaining the health of the World's oceans and ultimately the Planet.

From the Jaws blockbuster movie series to Shark Week, we are conditioned to see sharks as terrifying cold-blooded underwater predators. But as William McKeever, founder of Safeguard the Seas, reveals, sharks are evolutionary marvels essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. We can learn much from sharks, he argues, and our knowledge about them continues to grow.

The speaker

William McKeever is a documentary filmmaker, writer, and the founder of the non-profit organization Safeguard the Seas, dedicated to ocean conservation. He is the producer and director of the forthcoming feature-length documentary film Emperors of the Deep, which will premier in spring 2020.

Event format

William McKeever will give a multimedia presentation about his new hardcover, Emperors of the Deep: Sharks—The Ocean's Most Mysterious, Most Misunderstood, and Most Important Guardians, accompanied by a special 20-minute preview of his new documentary film, Emperors of the Deep. The presentation will last approximately one hour. A book signing will follow the presentation.

Book signing

A meet-and-greet book signing will immediately follow the lecture. Rainy Day Books will have copies of Emperors of the Deep available for purchase at the event.
