The Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis, will host a discussion on “A Primate’s Memoir,” authored by Stanford University neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26. The discussion is part of the 2012-13 Open Access Science community book read, a project of the Yolo County Library and the Center for Population Biology at UC Davis, whose graduate students will facilitate the discussion.

“A Primate’s Memoir” details the trysts and turmoil of Sapolsky’s chosen baboon troop, while weaving in the author’s observations of African society and politics following 10 years of living among and studying wild baboons in Kenya. In a broad comparison between humans and baboons at the physiological, behavioral and ecological levels, this book and the community discussions, will provoke questions on what makes us human.

An additional discussion will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at the Arthur F. Turner Library, 1212 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento.
