There’s still time to read our February Book Club pick if you haven’t gotten to it yet! (& even if you don’t finish the whole thing, you’re welcome to join us for the meeting!)
This month we’ll be discussing The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story.
Publisher’s Summary: The Zookeeper’s Wife is a strange, but historically true story of WWII. It reveals the extraordinary efforts of Jan and Antonina Zabinski, Christian zookeepers horrified by Nazi racism, who capitalized on the Nazis’ obsession with pureblood animals in order to save over 300 doomed people by hiding them in the bombed-out cages at the Warsaw Zoo. A tale of people, animals, and subversive acts of compassion.
