Thursday Book Group: Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Fifty-year-old Alice Howland, a Harvard professor of cognitive psychology, is at the top of her game when suddenly, after mere months of forgetfulness, she finds herself in the downward spiral of early onset Alzheimer's Disease. With no cure or treatment, Alice struggles to find meaning and purpose in her everyday life as her concept of self gradually slips away. Without memory or hope, she is forced to live in the moment, which is in turns beautiful, terrifying, and maddening. On Feb. 28th the group will discuss Albert of Adelaide by Howard L. Anderson.
