The ADRC of the Lakeshore, in collaboration with the Algoma Public Library, will be having our first Book Club for caregivers. We are planning to read the book "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova during the months of February and March 2023, meeting to discuss the book on Wednesday April 12th from 2:30pm - 3:30pm at the Algoma Public Library. Books now available at the library. Please call the ADRC at 1-877-416-7083 to register.
“Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty years old, she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her life—and her relationship with her family and the world—forever. As she struggles to cope with Alzheimer’s, she learns that her worth is comprised of far more than her ability to remember.
At once beautiful and terrifying, Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Ordinary People.”
“From New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova comes the definitive—and illuminating—novel about Alzheimer’s disease. Now a major motion picture starring Oscar winner Julianne Moore!”
