Book Club | “West with Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

Two giraffes survive a trip from African wildlands to the San Diego Zoo in 1938, overcoming everything from a hurricane and a flash flood to encounters with scoundrels who want to abduct them. The novel is based on a true story, informed by telegrams and newspaper stories from the time. Join us for coffee and a great discussion led by docent Helen Huntley.
