KRL will be interviewing several local authors over the next several months and this week we are interviewing children’s book author Jean Chaffee, who is the wife of the late Dr. Paul Chaffee who was the Fresno Chaffee Zoo vet for 30 years and the zoo director for 25 years. The zoo was named in honor of him at his time of passing. Her books are based on fun, true stories about beloved zoo animals located at the Chaffee Zoo.

But in Fresno you’ll find one collection of illuminated displays in a place that’s a little out of the ordinary.
