The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness

Bookcover for Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

Friday, January 3 through Friday, January 24, 2020. Read by Susan Sweeney.

In pursuit of the wild, solitary, predatory octopus, popular naturalist Sy Montgomery has practiced true immersion journalism. From New England aquarium tanks to the reefs of French Polynesia and the Gulf of Mexico, she chronicles the growing appreciation of this mollusk as she tells a unique love story. By turns funny, entertaining, touching, and profound, “The Soul of an Octopus” reveals what octopuses can teach us about the meeting of two very different minds.
