*** Author Event ***
Monday, November 16th ~ 7:00 pm
Join us as author, Julie Barton discusses and signs copies of her heartwarming and poignant memoir, Medicine Dog. At twenty-two, Julie 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. Nothing reached her until the fateful day that she decided to do one hopeful thing: adopt a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker.
Dog Medicine "captures the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery and the astonishing way animals can heal even the most broken hearts and minds."

Ivan Doig Memorial Bench
Carol just contacted us to let everyone know that Ivan's memorial bench has been placed in the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden in "a lovely spot, dappled in sunlight (when there is any)" and to also let us know how grateful she is for such a lovely idea and the contributions that made the purchase happen.
The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, located at 20312 15th Ave. NW, Seattle. is a free public garden created in 1958 by and named after Dr. Art Kruckeberg, Professor Emeritus of Botany at the Univ. of Washington and his wife, Maureen, a self taught botanist, on property that the Professor still lives on. Prof. Kruckeberg's book Gardening with NativePlants of the PacNW was considered to be the classic PacNW gardening guide for years while in print.
The grounds also houses the MSK Rare and Native Plants Nursery.
Check out the website www.kruckeberg.org for further details, hours and public events.
