Our Nonfiction Book Club meets every other month on the third Tuesday evening. This month's book club pick is The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman.
Documents the true story of Warsaw Zoo keepers and resistance activists Jan and Antonina Zabinski, who in the aftermath of Germany's invasion of Poland saved the lives of hundreds of Jewish citizens by smuggling them into empty cages and their home villa.
Light refreshments are served along with lots of lively discussion. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month before the discussion.
