Patti Callahan Henry shares the book that changed her life

Sometimes a book will enter my life at the exact moment that I need it, and I know when this happens because I see a circumstance differently or my heart is changed by the story. Yet other times a book settles inside me and works its magic slowly, so it is only later, even years later, that I see its impact on my life. Beach Music by Pat Conroy is just such a book. I read Beach Music in the mid-90s and it quickly became one of my favorite books. To this day, when I am asked for a list of my favorite books, I always include this novel. It wasn’t until lately that I understood its influence in my…

From waif to monarch, JUMBO was symbolic of Victorian life

in Fiction by

 Born in 1861 in French Sudan, imported to Paris as a two year old calf, then later sold to the London Zoo at Regent’s Park, Jumbo the elephant delighted countless children (including Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt) with rides and treats gently taken from outstretched hands.

By the time he reached sexual maturity, the abused and isolated animal had become dangerously unstable. He was sold to showman P.T. Barnum in 1881 (despite letters from 100,000 British schoolchildren who wrote to Queen Victoria begging her to prevent the sale) and brought to America. There, in the company of other elephants…
