Katherine Applegate, winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal, will share her award-winning book The One and Only Ivan. It is a story loosely based on the real-life gorilla, Ivan, who was kept in an enclosure in a shopping mall in Tacoma for nearly 30 years before being moved to Zoo Atlanta following public outcry to provide him a more appropriate home. The One and Only Ivan explores themes of compassion, empathy and self-discovery. Applegate will share a presentation, answer questions and sign books.
