Ruth Mendelson, a professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, has worked with Dr. Goodall, whom she calls a friend and “an incredible light on this planet,” to create an audiobook of her famous children’s biography, My Life With the Chimpanzees. Mendelson’s musical score captured the soul of Where the Questions Live, a popular interactive exhibition by Wes Bruce that created a healing space to explore the natural world in PEM’s Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center.
