About The Elephants Come Home:

The book is based on a true story! One day in 1999, Lawrence Anthony and Françoise Malby hear that a herd of wild African elephants needs a new home. They welcome the elephants to their wildlife sanctuary—Thula Thula—with open arms. But the elephants are much less sure they want to stay. How will Lawrence prove to them that they are safe and loved?  -Goodreads

This book club is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Avon Library.
