National Novel Writing Month–Water for Elephants

As a fun nod to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and the OWL’s role as a Come Write In space, I thought it would be fun to share a different bestseller each week in November that began as a NaNoWriMo novel. First up, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.


Ninety-something-year-old Jacob Jankowski remembers his time in the circus as a young man during the Great Depression, and his friendship with Marlena, the star of the equestrian act, and Rosie, the elephant, who gave them hope.

See you next week!
