What animals think and feel will be presented at the University of South Carolina Upstate by New York Times bestselling author and PBS host Carl Safina on Thursday, March 31.

Safina will discuss his latest book, “Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel”. Tickets are $15 for the 7 p.m. event or $60 for the 6 p.m. VIP reception and event (which includes a copy the hardback book). A portion of proceeds will benefit the Spartanburg Humane Society.

According to Safina, animals have been watching us for much longer than we have been watching them. “They know us better than we know them,” Safina said. “We have the same imperatives: take care of our babies, find food, try to stay alive. Whether we're outfitted for hiking in the hills of Africa or outfitted for diving under the sea, we are basically the same. We are kin under the skin.”

USC Upstate, WaterRock Institute and Wofford College are hosting the event.

Tickets may be purchased online.

For more information contact Heidi Campbell-Robinson, president of the WaterRock Institute, at (828) 393-4190 or email here.
