Sue Halpern is the author of four nonfiction books on topics as far-ranging as the migration cycles of monarch butterflies, the pleasures of solitude, the front lines of memory research, and life (and bicycling) in the Adirondacks, where she lives part of the year with her husband, the environmental activist and author, Bill McKibben. Her novels include The Book of Hard Things, a children’s book called Introducing Sasha Abramowitz, and the forthcoming Summer Hours at the Robbers Library. A regular contributor to The New York Review of Books, her journalism has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and Rolling Stone. Her latest book, the best-selling A Dog Walks Into A Nursing Home: Lessons in the Good Life From An Unlikely Teacher, chronicles Halpern’s partnership with her therapy dog, Pransky. Halpern is a scholar-in-residence at Middlebury College.
