This caption has been corrected to paraphrase part of Karen Dawn's lecture.

Karen Dawn reads a passage from her book, “Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals,” during a lecture at MU’s University Bookstore on Tuesday. If people change their behavior out of fear or embarrassment, the changes will only be temporary, she said. “The key is to get people to really think about the issue.”
