WPC Book Club, September 21, 7pm

The WPC Book Club is resuming on September 21, 7pm, with a discussion of “The Zookeeper’s Wife” by Diane Ackerman.  The story takes place in 1939 in the country of Poland. Antonina Żabiński and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabinski, have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under their care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist. To fight back on their own terms, the Żabińskis covertly begin working with the Resistance.  Antonina and Jan take action to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

The Washington Post praised this book as being “simultaneously grave and exuberant, wise and playful.”

The WPC Book Club invites and welcomes all.  Please join us for a cup of decaf coffee, fine fellowship and good discussion.
