Sue Halpern spoke about her book, A Dog Walks Into a Nursing Home: Lessons in the Good Life from an Unlikely Teacher, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, May 22, 2013.
Halpern, whose narrative nonfiction ranges from studies of monarch butterfly migration to the science of memory, here records her own experience as the human part of a therapy-dog team. Her partner is Pransky, an adolescent Labradoodle, and the two visit a county nursing home once a week, dispensing good will and receiving an unexpected bounty of warmth and humor.
