Diane Ackerman’s Visit

Posted on March 22, 2010. Filed under: Nonfiction | Tags: , |

Winner of the 2008 Orion Book Award, The Zookeeper’s Wife is about one of the most successful hideouts of World War II — an epic tale of transcendence and subversive acts of compassion. Author Diane Ackerman will be visiting Oakton on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at 6:30pm in the Performing Arts Center in Des Plaines. She is the author of two dozen highly acclaimed works of nonfiction and poetry, including the best-selling A Natural History of the Senses, which inspired a five-hour PBS television series hosted by Ackerman. The event is free so come and join us!

Women’s History Month events are sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. Thanks to the Oakton Educational Foundation for its generous support of Women’s and Gender Studies.
