Nick Jans

The Brookfield Public Library will draw the curtain on its Brookfield Reads! Program with a special author event at the Brookfield Zoo, 3300 Golf Road, on Saturday, April 23 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Nick Jans, the author of A Wolf Called Romeo, will discuss his book and share dozens of engaging images of Romeo, a wild Alaskan wolf, playing with dogs, interacting with people and living his life in their shadows.

A question-and-answer session and book-signing will follow the presentation, which will be held in the Brookfield Zoo’s Discovery Center.
