Join international bestselling author Isabel Allende and KQED’s Dr. Michael Krasny for a very special evening to benefit shelter animals. The third annual Best in Show – Stories from Beyond the Shelter is a one-time live storytelling event focused on the animal companions that shape our lives with love.

The evening will feature international bestselling author and local icon, Isabel Allende. Isabel is one of the most widely-read authors in the world, having sold more than 74 million books. She has authored more than twenty three bestselling and critically acclaimed books, including The House of the Spirits, Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, Daughter of Fortune, Island Beneath the Sea, Paula, The Japanese Lover and In the Midst of Winter. Translated into more than forty two languages. Allende’s works entertain and educate readers by interweaving imaginative stories with significant historical events.

Rounding out the evening, the top entries of our pet storytelling contest will share their stories of how a rescue animal touched their lives. The contest winner will be awarded as Best in Show.
