The talk will mark the U.S. publication of Dame Daphnes long awaited autobiography Love, Life, and Elephants An African Love Story, published in the U.S. by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The book was first released in hardback on March 1st in the UK, published by Penguin/Viking as An African Love Story Love, Life, and Elephants. Where only 6 weeks after publication it is already in its 4th edition, having been received so positively by literary critics, conservationists and, of course, supporters of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which Daphne founded in 1977, in memory of her late husband David Sheldrick MBE.
