On July 26, 2014, the award-winning former newspaper reporter and critically-acclaimed author Carol Bradley will visit The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee Welcome Center to answer your questions and sign copies of her book, “Last Chain on Billie: How One Extraordinary Elephant Escaped the Big Top.”
“Last Chain on Billie” chronicles how Billie overcame the psychological damage of her past and, while residing at The Elephant Sanctuary, learned to trust humans again. The book also explores the contemporary challenges facing zoos and circuses, as public scrutiny around conditions for captive elephants steadily increases.
Bradley, who studied animal law as a Harvard University Nieman Fellow, will visit several American cities. The Welcome Center is located at 27 E. Main St., in downtown Hohenwald, Tennessee. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at The Welcome Center.
