Water for Elephants

Robert Pattison and Reese Witherspoon

The movie “Water for Elephants,” starring Robert Pattison and Reese Witherspoon, opens in theaters over spring break. Did you know it’s based on a novel?  We have the book “Water for Elephants,” by Sara Gruen, in the library.

Jacob Jankowski, an elderly man living his last days in a nursing home, recalls his time as a young man with a traveling circus during the Depression.  Because he was a veterinary student, Jacob is assigned to tend to the neglected circus animals.  Drama quickly unfolds as Jacob falls in love with Marlena, the animal trainer’s wife.

If you like animals, adventure or love stories, this is the book for you.  Find it among the new books above the reference shelves.  Happy reading!
