Members of the Western Washington University Ishmael Club created a display which was featured in the middle of the main courtyard on the Western Washington University campus. The display took place in Red Square and was open both June 6 and 7, 2002. No, this is nowhere near the Kremlin...Red Square lies at the heart of the Bellingham, WA campus, and is a common hangout for students between classes.
Members talked to passersby about Ishmael and other books by Daniel Quinn and handed out copies of Quinn's speeches. The second day was highlighted by Greg Lisewych dressing in a gorilla suit to catch the attention of potential readers, as pictured below! The group had a great time, opened some eyes on their campus, and helped spread the word.
The group used chalk in Red Square to bring attention to Ishmael.

P.S. It's not religious."

What can you say? People love the gorilla!
