10/04/2016 - One Book One San Diego: 10th Anniversary Event with Diane Ackerman
Join KPBS and your San Diego County Library on World Animal Day for a special One Book, One San Diego 10th Anniversary event with 2009 featured author, Diane Ackerman, who wrote "The Zookeeper's Wife." 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.
