JULIE BARTON at Books Inc. Palo Alto

With writing featured in Huffington Post and South Carolina Review, among others, Julie Barton discusses her powerful and uplifting memoir, Dog Medicine: How My Dog Saved Me from Myself. At twenty-two, Julie Barton found herself suffering from severe depression. 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.
