(TBT) “The Zookeeper’s Wife” by Diane Ackerman

The Zookeeper’s Wife is one of Diane Ackerman’s many nonfiction books. This incredible true story is about a husband and wife, Jan and Antonina Zabinski, who hid Jews in their Warsaw zoo during WWII. The Zabinski’s story is one of a kind and I am surprised I hadn’t heard of it until now.

(TBT) “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy

The Road, a novel by Cormac McCarthy, is a post-apocalyptic story about a man and his son who are walking to the coast with only a shopping cart carrying a few things. The story not only demonstrates a perception of what the end of world would look like, but also the deep bond that the father and son have.
