PSU Weekend - Sara Gruen
Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants has become one of the most beloved and best-selling novels of our time. Readers fell in love with the story of Jacob, a young man tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers circus, and Rosie, the untrainable elephant. This New York Times best-seller is now available in 44 languages and has over 3 million copies in print worldwide.
Sara Gruen's most recent book is Ape House, starring the amazing Bonobo ape. When a number of apes are kidnapped from a language laboratory, their mysterious appearance on a reality TV show calls into question our assumptions about these animals who share 99.4 percent of our DNA. A devoted animal lover, Gruen's intense study of communications techniques with apes gave her rare access to the Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa.
