"Apology to a Whale: Words to Mend a World" by Cecile Pineda is now available from WingsPress.com. Western States Legal Foundation is sponsoring a benefit book launch, reading and signing on Saturday, October 10 at the Berkeley Town House, 2550 Dana Street at the corner of Parker Street, with a wine and cheese reception at 3:30 pm and author presentation at 4 pm. Cecile Pineda will talk about how the work developed, and answer questions from the public. Admission is free. Book sales will benefit Western States Legal Foundation, which has been working for the abolition of nuclear weapons throughout the world for more than three decades.

About the book: Human beings are killing the planet and themselves in the process. Cecile Pineda asks a simple question: Why? An urgent reframing of current ecological thinking, Apology to a Whale addresses what the intersection of relative linguistics and archeology reveals about the present world's power relations, and what the extraordinary communication of plants and animals can teach us. This masterpiece of creative nonfiction is a wild ride on the frontiers of archeo-linguistics in search of the greatest killer on Earth-us.
