What the Dog Knows

Cat Warren and Solo.

Cat Warren, an associate professor of journalism in the Department of English, teaches science writing, editing and reporting. In a completely different role, and working alongside the cadaver dog she trained, Warren also helps law enforcement officials search for missing and presumed-dead people.

In her new book, What the Dog Knows (Touchstone Books, 2013), Warren combines science, history and memoir to explore the world of working dogs that sniff out bodies, bombs and drugs, even unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers.

Read more about Warren’s research, avocation, and book in NC State’s Bulletin, in the News and Observer, and in Publishers Weekly. Or go hear her talk about her work if you’re in the area on these dates:
