Do you have a favorite female scientist?

This nonfiction graphic novel gives an excellent introduction into the lives and careers of these three pioneering primatologists. Our book discussion is designed for adults only — but the reading guide included in the program cost will offer media suggestions and discussion questions suitable for children.
