WHO: Melissa Fay Greene
WHEN: Thursday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta


Two-time National Book Award Nominee, Melissa Fay Greene, delivers a profound and surprising account of dogs on the front lines of rescuing both children and adults from the trenches of grief, emotional, physical, and cognitive disability, and post-traumatic stress disorder in her new book THE UNDERDOGS: CHILDREN, DOGS, AND THE POWER OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. THE UNDERDOGS tells a story of a differently-abled young woman and her homegrown service dog, while weaving the latest scientific discoveries about our co-evolution with dogs, along with exquisitely rendered stories of suffering children and their heartbroken families. Written with characteristic insight, humanity, humor, and irrepressible joy, what could have been merely touching is a penetrating, compassionate exploration of larger questions: about our attachment to dogs, what constitutes a productive life, and what can be accomplished with unconditional love.

Melissa Fay Greene is the author of PRAYING FOR SHEETROCK; THE TEMPLE BOMBING; LAST MAN OUT; THERE IS NO ME WITHOUT YOU; ONE WOMAN'S ODYSSEY TO RESCUE HER COUNTRY'S CHILDREN; and NO BIKING IN THE HOUSE WITHOUT A HELMET. She has also been a contributor to NPR, THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, LIFE, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, NEWSWEEK, THE ATLANTIC, READERS DIFEST, MS., THE WILSON QUARTERLY, REDBOOK, and SALON.COM. Her honors include two National Book Award nominations, a National Book Critics Circle Award nomination, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize, the Southern Book Critics Circle Award, the ACLU National Civil Liberties Award, the Hadassah Myrtle Wreath Award, the Salon Book Award, Elle Magazine’s Readers’ Prize, the Georgia Author Award, and a Dog Writers of America Award. She is a current Guggenheim Fellow.
