Book Club: Saving Simon

Monday, December 05, 2016, 7:00 PM

This month’s Adult Book Discussion book will be Saving Simon by Jon Katz. Copies of the book will be available at the Library Services Desk approximately a month before our discussion.

In the spring of 2011, Jon Katz received a phone call that would challenge every idea he ever had about mercy and compassion. An animal control officer had found a neglected donkey on a farm and she hoped that Jon and his wife, Maria, would be willing to adopt him. Jon wasn’t planning to add another animal to his home on Bedlam Farm. But the moment he saw the Simon, he felt a powerful connection. Jon and Maria decided to take him in.
