Jon Mooallem 

When: Thu., May 23, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free

Frequent New York Times contributor Jon Mooallem has always had a special eye for peculiar stories involving animals. Whether writing about gay creatures in the wild, a rhesus monkey wandering the streets of Tampa, or the urban wars being fought against pigeons by vigilant humans worldwide, Mooallem often seeks -- with just a touch of comedy to boot -- to bring the complex human-animal relationship into focus. His new book, Wild Ones, does just that. Looking at three threatened species and delving into all sorts of obscure history and science along the way, Mooallem explores how much more complicated the story of endangered animals is than a simple morality tale. Join him on Thursday, May 23, as he reads from Wild Ones at Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley), where you may find yourself laughing and/or crying. 7 p.m., free. 510-525-7777 or
