John Hargrove Reads from “Beneath the Surface” at Quogue Wildlife Refuge

July 2, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

BENEATH THE SURFACE: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish

BENEATH THE SURFACE is a hard-hitting, heartrending account of everything that’s wrong with orca captivity, and a passionate call for the relationship between humans and killer whales to be radically rethought John Hargrove’s career as one of the most experienced orca trainers in the world spanned the course of two decades.

He worked with 20 different whales, on two different continents, and at two of SeaWorld’s U.S. facilities, where he was promoted to the highest level of trainer. Hargrove resigned from SeaWorld in 2012 and is now an advocate for the humane treatment of orcas, having starred in the award-winning documentary, Blackfish.

A free program for adults and teens, co-hosted by QWR and Books and Books of Westhampton Beach. Reservations required.
