Event Description

Julie Barton will read from her memoir, Dog Medicine: How My Dog Saved Me From Myself. The book hit the top 10 on two New York Times best-seller lists and has been translated into multiple languages.

About Dog Medicine:

At age 22, Julie Barton collapsed on her kitchen floor in Manhattan. She was one year out of college and severely depressed. She called her mom, who raced from Ohio to New York, picked Julie up, 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 unforgettable language the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery, and the astonishing way animals can help heal even the most broken hearts and minds.
