Gruen’s last book, Water For Elephants, has just been made into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon and Hal Holbrook. Gruen and her family were invited to play cameo roles in the production. “On location they had all the tents and the very first time they parked and put me in a golf cart and we drove over a berm — it was all there. And I was speechless, because there it was — my book!”
Gruen is in Seattle today promoting her latest novel Ape House (we'll be there to bring you a full report). Check out the rest of her schedule in the U.S. - @BellasGuardian also let us know Gruen will be in London, Ontario Oct 26th at the South London Chapters on Wellington. Don't miss her, this is your chance to meet the author that brought Rosie and Jacob to life!
