Pittsburgh author Chip Walter will introduce his new book, “Last Ape Standing: The Seven-Million-Year Story of How and Why We Survived,” on Jan. 31 at Barnes & Noble at the Waterfront.

The book looks at the evolutionary events that molded man into a unique and somewhat odd creature.

Walter, who is the founder of www.allthingshuman.net and was an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University, is the author of three other mainstream science books, including “I'm Working on That: A Trek From Science Fiction to Science Fact,” which he co-authored with William Shatner. He also is a former CNN bureau chief, PBS documentary filmmaker and author-in-residence at the Mellon Institute.

For every book signed at the Homestead event, the book's publisher, Walker & Company, will donate $13 to the Rainbow Kitchen in Homestead. The book is being released on Tuesday and retails for $26.

Walter will be on hand for a signing and discussion beginning at 7 p.m.

Details: 412-462-5743.
