Edmonds Community College’s Convergence Writers Series is featuring science and environmental writer Rachel Clark for a reading on Thursday, May 5. The event is free and open to the public.
Rachel Clark is the author of just-released “The Blackfish Prophecy,” a work of fiction set in Washington state about wild orcas that shows the ancient bond between humans and whales and questions whether orcas belong in captivity.
Her book has received praise from Dr. Jane Goodall and Tim Zimmerman, associate producer and co-writer of “Blackfish.”
“’The Blackfish Prophecy’ opens many doors to understanding and possibilities for living as members of the family of life on Earth,” Howard Garrett, co-director of Orca Network, said.
While in college, Clark worked with captive Beluga whales and dolphins, then encountered killer whales swimming free in their home waters.
For the last twenty years, she’s devoted her career as a science and environment writer to conveying the wonders of nature. “The Blackfish Prophecy” is her first book.
The event on Thursday, May 5 begins at 11:30 a.m. in the college’s Black Box Theatre on campus, located at 20310 68th Ave. W. in Lynnwood. Reserve your free ticket at www.blackboxedcc.org. Learn more about Clark and the reading here.
