Read ‘One Book’
"Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen has been selected as Park City’s One Book for 2007. It is the story of a ninety-something-year-old named Jacob Jankowski remembering his time in the circus as a young man during the Great Depression. The goal of the One Book program is to get everyone in the community reading the same book and discussing topics raised by it. The literature provides a venue for the discussion of issues that pertain to the community within the context of a story. A few of the topics brought up by this year’s book selection include; aging, social classes, discrimination, life changing events and the treatment of animals. Pick up your copy at the Park City Library. For further information and a listing of book discussions call 615-5600 or visit http://www.parkcitylibrary.org.
