Copperfield’s Books welcomes Jane Goodall to Sonoma County for an event on Saturday, April 6 at the Santa Rosa High School Theater in Santa Rosa as part of its Spring Copperfield’s Books Presents series.

Her visit to Sonoma County is part of Goodall’s national tour to promote her new book, Seeds Of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants ($26.99). The book has been delayed but Copperfield’s Books received publisher approval to proceed with the event, thus making it the only bookstore in the country to be hosting her this season. Tickets are on sale at http://www.copperfieldsbooks.com/boxoffice and in three of its stores: Montgomery Village, Petaluma, and Sebastopol. Tickets are $35 for one person with a book and $50 for two people with a book. Santa Rosa High Theater is located at 1235 Mendocino Avenue.

Publication of Jane Goodall's book, Seeds Of Hope, has been postponed tentatively until August. Tickets include a copy of this book and therefore customers will be pre-ordering the book and will receive it when it comes out at their local Copperfield’s Bookstore. Copperfield’s will have bookplates on hand at the event so that readers have an opportunity to meet her and get a signature. Copperfield’s will have an assortment of her other titles on sale at the event as well.

Goodall issued the following statement about her new book, "Together with my publisher, I have decided to postpone the release of my new book, Seeds Of Hope, so that we may have the necessary time to correct any unintentional errors. It is important to me that the proper sources are credited, and I will be working diligently with my team to address all areas of concern. My goal is to ensure that when this book is released it is not only up to the highest of standards, but also that the focus be on the crucial messages it conveys. It is my hope that then the meaningful conversation can resume about the harm we are inflicting on our natural environment and how we can all act together to ensure our children and grandchildren inherit a healthy planet."

Goodall is regarded as the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, best known for her 45-year study of chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. A primatologist, she is an advocate for conservation and animal welfare and is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute. Seeds Of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants represents her lifelong love of plants.

Copperfield’s Books hosts more than 500 author events a year with most of them free to the public. Goodall is one of many A-list authors appearing at Copperfield’s Books this Spring.
