Join Berkeley Humane for Best in Show - Stories from Beyond the Shelter. Hosted by Dr. Michael Krasny, of the award-winning KQED Forum, this one-show performance is a live event sharing stories of the animal companions that shape our lives with love.
This evening event will feature popular local authors Julie Barton and Steven Winn. Julie Barton is a local writer and New York Times bestselling author of Dog Medicine, How My Dog Saved Me from Myself. Her story captures the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery, the beauty of forgiveness, and the astonishing ways animals can help heal even the most broken hearts and minds. Steven Winn is a local award-winning arts journalist, fiction writer and City Arts & Lectures interviewer. Steven's book Come Back, Como: Winning the Heart of Reluctant Dog, is based on a beloved ten-part series originally published in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Rounding out the evening, the top entries of our pet storytelling contest will share their stories of how a dog or cat touched their lives. The contest winner will be awarded as Best in Show.
Tickets will be sold online and via the Freight & Salvage Theater box office. There will be a reception sponsored by Gilman Brewing Company and a silent auction before the event with all proceeds supporting Berkeley Humane.
