The son of a Black mother and white father overcomes family trauma to find the courage of compassion in veterinary practiceJody Lulich will join Open Book to celebrate the launch of his new book, In the Company of Grace: A Veterinarian's Memoir of Trauma and Healing, on Thursday, April 13 at 7:00 p.m. The event will take place in the Open Book Performance Hall, with book sales by Magers & Quinn.

In the Company of Grace is Jody Lulich’s moving memoir about finding courage in compassion and strength in healing—and power in finally confronting the darkness of his youth. He explains his path to veterinary medicine and how caring for helpless, voiceless animals amidst his own shame and pain provided a lifeline, and a chance to heal himself as well.

"In the Company of Grace is haunting and powerful. Jody Lulich has written an absorbing meditation on his lifelong journey from a helpless child who witnessed his beloved mother take her own life to finding acceptance through the unconditional love of an elderly woman and redemption in caring for animals. An unforgettable and inspiring memoir." —Carolyn Holbrook, author of Tell Me Your Names and I Will Testify

"Despite suffering true tragedies as a child, Jody Lulich grew up to be a veterinarian who shows deep compassion to both people and animals. His devotion to his mentor and mother figure, Grace Hooks, inspires admiration and an understanding of a true loving relationship. Don't miss this remarkable book." —Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of Sleeping Arrangements
