9/10/07: The Zookeeper's Wife

Diane Ackerman

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Monday, KUER will carry gavel to gavel coverage of the Congressional hearings on the war in Iraq. At 7:00 pm, Doug talks to the poet and naturalist Diane Ackerman about her newest work, The Zookeeper's Wife. It's the true story of Jan Zabinski and his wife Antonina, who sheltered 300 Jews in the Warsaw Zoo during World War II. Ackerman is the author of the best-selling A Natural History of the Senses, and her compassion and respect for the natural world inform this very human narrative. (Recorded earlier for broadcast)

  • Monday evening at 7:00 p.m., Diane Ackerman will give a reading and signing at the King's English Bookshop. The event celebrates The King's English 30th anniversary, and will be held at the bookstore (1511 South 1500 East in Salt Lake City). For more information, call the store at 801-484-9100 or click here
