Dr. Michael Krasny of KQED’s Forum, hosts the program which opens with an interview with international-bestselling and critically-acclaimed author, Isabel Allende.

 

Dr. Krasny will then interview the Berkeley Humane’s storytelling contest finalists who will each share their very personal story of how a rescue animal touched their lives.

 

The evening culminates with the winner being awarded Best in Show.

 

All proceeds will support Berkeley Humane’s life saving programs.
