Still Alice by Lisa Genova will be featured on Friday, August 7, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at the library. The story tells the story of Alice Howland. 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.
Maria Riccio Bryce will facilitate the discussion. Maria, a noted playwright, actress and singer spent a decade in London and along with her husband founded the Overground Theatre, one of London’s leading fringe theatres of the 1970’s. Upon returning to Amsterdam she began her work as a playwright creating Mother, I’m Here, Hearts of Fire, and My Semi-Professional Life in the Quasi-Professional Theatre.
