Jane Goodall’s Visit to Iowa City

by on March 11th, 2014

I had the privilege of hearing Jane Goodall speak at Carver Hawkeye Arena last night and it was amazing! Goodall is funny, engaging, and passionate about her work and the environment. If you missed the program, the Iowa City Press-Citizen did a great job summarizing her lecture.

My favorite quote of the evening came when Goodall talked about buying a used copy of Tarzan of the Apes and falling in love with the main character.  Goodall reflected, “He married the wrong Jane.”

The Library has a great collection of materials by and about Jane Goodall including books, audiobooks & DVDs and many are available for checkout.

    If you missed last night’s lecture, the University of Iowa recorded it. The full lecture will be available for viewing until April 11, on UITV channel 17 in Iowa City and on the University of Iowa YouTube channel.
