In appreciation for famed author Dean Koontz’s recent program for our High Desert Branch, the branch made a $300 donation to the Victor Valley Animal Protection League in his name. High Desert interviewed him on a Zoom meeting accessible to all members of the CWC’s 22 branches. Koontz has written 130 books, is published in 38 languages, has sold more than 500 million copies of his works, and is an animal protection activist.
