All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
During her mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s, Deborah Shouse explored ways to connect with her and developed new rituals to anchor holidays and other celebrations. She is joined by Ron Zoglin, a professional storyteller, and Michelle Niedens, education director of the Heart of America Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, for a discussion of her book, which offers humor and hope to family members, friends, and caregivers.
Shouse is an author and founder of The Kansas City Star’s FYI Book Club. With Zoglin she has authored Antiquing for Dummies and Making Your Message Memorable: Communicating Through Stories.
Co-sponsored by the Heart of America Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, the Landon Center on Aging, Open Circle, and Rainy Day Books.
