Presenting Organization

New England Aquarium



After a 2011 ORION magazine piece, "Deep Intellect", about the sensitive sweet-natured giant Pacific octopus at the New England Aquarium went viral, Sy knew she had her next book idea. In The Soul of an Octopus, Sy chronicles a growing scientific appreciation of the octopus' intelligence, personality and memory. She also tells a love story about coming to know a complex and spirited creature.
Join Sy on her journey from behind the scenes at the New England Aquarium's octopus exhibit to the exotic waters of French Polynesia.
