December online ebook club – Jeremy & Amy by Jeremy Keeling
‘Tis the season for giving and in celebration, our online ebook club book of the month is the story of a man inspired to create an primate sanctuary in the UK. Jeremy and Amy is the memoir of Jeremy Keeling, creator of Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, a now popular tourist attraction. Keeling was inspired to create this sanctuary by Amy, an Orang-Utan he helped raise who later saved his life in a car accident. Following the accident Keeling, along with fellow primate-lover Jim Cronin spent the next 20 years building a sanctuary for primates rescued from poachers, scientists and photographers around the world. This is the celebrated story behind the sanctuary. Here are some questions to get the discussion started:
1. Do you think Keeling effectively achieves his objective in the creation of Monkey World?
2. Was there a part of the book that struck a chord with you?
3. How effectively do you think Keeling delivers his message about animal conservation?
