Water For Elephants Author Sara Gruen Still on Book Tour

Last night I was at Book Passages in Corte Madera, CA to see Water For Elephants author Sara Gruen. She is in the middle of a book tour for her new book The Ape House which just came out Sept. 7. Although this book is the main focus of the tour she will answer questions about any of her books, including Water For Elephants. She even talked a little about her set visit and meeting Rob Pattinson as well as Reese Witherspoon and Christopher Waltz. I didn't realize that Christopher's part is a combo of Uncle Al and August. Sara, her husband, and all of her three boys will make an appearance in the film. Most of her book tour occurs at local bookstores in intimate settings. You should check her out! Her remaining tour dates are listed below.

Description of The Ape House from saragruen.com:

Sam, Bonzi, Lola, Mbongo, Jelani, and Makena are no ordinary apes. These bonobos, like others of their species, are capable of reason and carrying on deep relationships—but unlike most bonobos, they also know American Sign Language.

Isabel Duncan, a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn’t understand people, but animals she gets—especially the bonobos. Isabel feels more comfortable in their world than she’s ever felt among humans . . . until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter who braves the ever-present animal rights protesters outside the lab to see what’s really going on inside.

When an explosion rocks the lab, severely injuring Isabel and “liberating” the apes, John’s human interest piece turns into the story of a lifetime, one he’ll risk his career and his marriage to follow. Then a reality TV show featuring the missing apes debuts under mysterious circumstances, and it immediately becomes the biggest—and unlikeliest—phenomenon in the history of modern media. Millions of fans are glued to their screens watching the apes order greasy take-out, have generous amounts of sex, and sign for Isabel to come get them. Now, to save her family of apes from this parody of human life, Isabel must connect with her own kind, including John, a green-haired vegan, and a retired porn star with her own agenda.
