Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen recounts the wild and wonderful period Jacob Jankowski spent with the
Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. When 23-year-old Jankowski learns that his parents have been
killed in a car crash, leaving him penniless, he drops out of Cornell veterinary school and parlays his expertise with animals into a job with the circus, where he cares for a menagerie of exotic creatures. He also falls in love with
Marlena, one of the show’s star performers. A fascinating look at circus life. For more information, contact [email protected], or call 510-293-5239.
