Ken Foster

Ken may be familiar to you as the author of  the memoir, “The Dogs Who Found Me,” and the collection, “Dogs I have Met.” His latest book, “I’m a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America’s Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet,” is a gorgeously illustrated and tenderly written tribute to one of the most misunderstood of canine companions.  His work has appeared in Bark, Salon, McSweeney’s, The New York Times, Village Voice and Time Out New York.  In 2008, he founded The Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible Pit Bull ownership.

About Kathy Palmer

I grew up in NJ and Belgium and eventually settled in Portland, ME. Until missing the big city, which inspired a return to Boston in 2010, and the opening of Fish & Bone on Newbury Street. Fish & Bone and its original sibling store Fetch (est. 2000) bring together some of the things I love the most: animals, real food, great design, having an impact, the natural world, urban life, creative solutions, good community, and a good laugh. Zip is all pug, but I'm a cultural mutt.
