Title: The Dogs of Chernobyl: 35 Years After the Nuclear Reactor Accident (Zoom and In-Person)
Contact: Sarah,
Location: Zoom and in Library Meeting Room
Description: 35 years after the nuclear accident, Stephen Quandt went to Chernobyl to participate in a spay/neuter and research campaign for the dogs that were descended from the pets left behind after the disaster of 1986 (and that were not killed by the military.) Stephen will tell his story of meeting the inhabitants of the mostly abandoned town of Chernobyl City. He will also discuss the abandoned city of Pripyat and the dogs that he encountered. This is a story of resilience, hope, life and even heroism. This program will be on Zoom and will also be displayed at the library. Please e-mail Sarah at ssnyder@jaxpl.org to receive a Zoom link. No registration required for in-person viewing; masks required for in-person viewing.
