Book Signing-Florida

The book signing in June in Florida went well. I did a talk about Alzheimer's and the book and my perspectives as a caregiver at age 17 to my mother as well as a couple readings. There were some wonderful questions, and I have to say the issues and struggles people are dealing with for their loved ones have not changed in 30 years, since I went through it.
I want to thank the staff at Lake City, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale public libraries for hosting these events. They were gracious hosts, the presentations free of charge and were just for anyone interested in AD. Most people as you know are not interested in hearing about the disease till it touches them.
People are looking for answers, validation, reassurance, and new meaningful information. Very caring family members, good folks, regular human beings just trying to do the best they can in the face of this devastating disease. There are so many unique and touching stories out there in families, about a human being their loved one. Their loved ones are so special, the pain and suffering is so humanly universal.
Here's some photos from the events.
