whats the point of the post??

Pruetz is very well known, respected and my daughter Samantha has interacted with her as wlel as with many in the same field of promatology!

a LOT of speakers and talks of a similar genre take place all year at Sam's school-ASU since theyre the home of the Institute for Human origins and the famous Lucy finder-dr Don Johansson, the IHO in 2008 changed its director to Dr Bill Kimbel

and they also take place all year at the various home bases of the primatologists/anthropologists- especially-Stonybrook, Univ Wisc, madison; Indiana University etc etc

if you have real interest you can get onto the email notices for the talks from any of the schools or the ASU/IHO--are you near any university?? maybe you can see if any of them are speaking close by or at the science or natural history museums??
