The virtual launch will feature Lynda and three eminent guests deeply attuned to the southern resident orcas, their past, their present and their future: Jay Julius, lifelong fisherman and former chairman of the Lummi Nation; Deborah Giles, research director of Wild Orca, and Jason Colby, environmental historian and chairman of the history department at the University of Victoria. The launch event will be moderated by Seattle broadcast journalist Jeff Renner, who personally met his first orca face-to-face through a scuba mask years ago.

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company, Mountaineers Books and The Seattle Times. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation. This event will be recorded for SPL’s YouTube Channel.
