Hi All,

Our next book club meeting is on Tuesday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m. We'll be discussing The Treasure of the Sierra Madre by B. Traven.  SJ, will you be back then to bring suggestions? 

September's book is Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived by Ralph Helfer.  From the book cover, "Spanning seven decades and three continents, Modoc is one of the most amazing true animal stories ever told. Raised together in a small German circus town, a boy and an elephant formed a bond that would last their entire lives, and would be tested time and again; through a near-fatal shipwreck in the Indian Ocean, an apprenticeship with the legendary Mahout elephant trainers in the Indian teak forests, and their eventual rise to circus stardom in 1940s New York City. Modoc is a captivating true story of loyalty, friendship, and high adventure, to be treasured by animal lovers everywhere."

Also, attached below is the Anchorage Municipal Libraries brochure on their book club book packets.  We will borrow Modoc through this program.

Read on, Amanda
