Come, Let Me Guide You: A Life Shared with a Guide Dog

Susan Krieger, Sociologist, Stanford University; Author, Come, Let Me Guide You

This is a Good Lit event, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Come, Let Me Guide You is an invaluable contribution to the literature on human-animal communication and on the guide-dog-human experience, as well as to disability and feminist ethnographic studies. It shows how a relationship with a guide dog is unique among bonds, for it rests upon highly regulated connections yet touches deep emotional chords. For Krieger, those chords have resulted in these memorable stories, often humorous and playful, always instructive, and generative of broader insight.
