A caring interview with Santa Fe’s Debra Rosenman, author of the multi-award winning The Chimpanzee Chronicles: Stories of Heartbreak and Hope from Behind The Bars.
This week, Debra’s collection of essays and richly-photographed book has won its twelfth award, an extraordinary honor for a self-published book. We discuss the wisdom and joy that chimpanzees bring to our world, and the pain and suffering they’ve endured over centuries in captivity despite sharing more than 98 percent of their DNA with humans. For listeners who are writers themselves we also delve into the unique challenges of self publishing from the seed of an idea to the first keystroke to marketing the beautiful finished product.
