In THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE the time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan’s stewardship and Antonina’s care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto.

Dutch Bike-a-Logue: June 14, Almonte Branch Meeting Room 7 p.m.
In May of 2017 five men — young at heart — decided to tour The Netherlands and Belgium by bike. So with nothing but a credit card, a bike and two saddle bags full of stuff each, they jumped the big pond and hit the road on perhaps the best cycling highway in existence. 20 days and over 1,000 km later they all had a richer understanding of the country, its people and way of life. They also learned a thing or two about bicycle touring and each other — all of it good!
Join in as they share some of their experiences as part of Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month. More Information here.
