Joan Scheier

New York City native Joan Scheier, author of Central Park Zoo, visited all the zoos as a child and led many tours while she served as a city public school librarian for more than 25 years. She is now a wildlife guide at the Central Park Zoo. Her familiarity with the city s history and architecture paired with her love of zoos led to the writing of this book. Her talent as a researcher and writer make this book a loving tribute to her city and its zoos.
