Please join Green Apple Books in welcoming Julie Barton, author of Dog Medicine, on Thursday, November 12th, 2015 at 7 pm.
At twenty-two, Julie Barton collapsed on her kitchen floor in Manhattan. She was one year out of college and severely depressed. Summoned by Julie’s incoherent phone call, her mother raced from Ohio to New York and took her home.
Psychiatrists, therapists and family tried to intervene, but nothing reached her until the day she decided to do one hopeful thing: adopt a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker.
Dog Medicine captures in beautiful, elegiac language the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery, and the astonishing way animals can heal even the most broken hearts and minds.
In lieu of a ticket, please bring a donation for Wonder Dog Rescue SF (small dog beds, leashes, collars, treats, or small blankets).
