Conservation Panel and Book Signing with John Morano

Monmouth University Professor and Eco-Adventure Series author John Morano will host a book signing and Conservation Panel with Clean Ocean Action and the Urban Coast Institute (UCI) on Oct. 27 at the Eatontown Barnes & Noble, located in Monmouth Mall.

The event will kick off with a signing at 3 p.m., followed by the panel from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and a second signing session at the discussion’s conclusion. A portion of sales revenues on the day will be donated to the UCI to support student-faculty research activities at Monmouth University.

Morano will moderate an expert discussion with Clean Ocean Action Executive Director Cindy Zipf and UCI Director Tony MacDonald on topics such as threats facing Jersey Shore area marine environments and wildlife. An audience question and answer segment will follow.

Morano’s Eco-Adventure Series work raises awareness of endangered species both in this region and throughout the world. The books present imperiled habitats as settings, underpinning the relationship between wildlife and their environment. The stories stress that thinking globally and acting locally are imperative, both to the sustainability of our environment and the betterment of our everyday eco-intertwined lives.

A professor of journalism at Monmouth, Morano has authored four novels in his Eco-Adventure Series. A writer very concerned with endangered species and habitat depletion, Morano employs the journalistic ethic of giving a voice to the voiceless as he pens stories of imperiled creatures and habitats that can’t speak for themselves.
