William McKeever – Emperors of the Deep

Left Bank Books presents ocean conservationist, William McKeever, who will discuss and sign his new book, “Emperor’s of the Deep”, along with a preview of his companion documentary.

William McKeever is on a mission to change everyone’s views of the mysterious creatures of the deep. “Emperor’s of the Deep” takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey around the world and deep under the water’s surface—from the frigid waters of the Arctic Circle to the coral reefs of the tropical Central Pacific—to dispel the narrative about sharks (from Jaws to “Shark Week,)” which claims they’re terrifying underwater predators. McKeever says, “Sharks are unequivocally essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. When these important apex predators are removed from the ocean, the effect on reefs, seagrass and all the marine ecosystems is catastrophic for generations to come.”

This event is open to the public, but proof of purchase of the book from Left Bank is required to enter the signing line.
