BOOK & A FILM AT THE DREAMLAND
On Sunday September 21st, join the book store’s at the Theatre. The Dreamland is hosting a movie Screening of “The Genius Of Marian” and Book signing with Greg O’Brien author of “On Pluto, Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s” at 2pm. (Free Event)
This is a book about living with Alzheimer’s, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor—a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.—and the only one of these diseases on the rise. More than 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia; about 35 million people worldwide.
Greg O’Brien, an award-winning investigative reporter, has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s and is one of those faceless numbers. Acting on long-term memory and skill coupled with well-developed journalistic grit, O’Brien decided to tackle the disease and his imminent decline by writing frankly about the journey. O’Brien is a master storyteller. His story is naked, wrenching, and soul searching for a generation and their loved ones about to cross the threshold of this death in slow motion. On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s is a trail-blazing roadmap for a generation—both a “how to” for fighting a disease, and a “how not” to give up!
The film “The Genius of Marian” is just as moving and informative.
We hope to see you there as we “Learn as a community.”
Want to read more books dealing with Alzheimer’s? Come into the bookstore and get a copy of Still Alice, Lisa Genova’s stunning ficitonal account of a woman dealing with the disease.
Still Alice will also be a film starring Julianne Moore.
Happy Reading and Happy Viewing! 😉
