In Conversation…..

On Tuesday 18th May, 12.30-13.30 GMT, I’ll be in conversation with the head of Barbican and Community Libraries, Carol Boswarthack.

I first met Carol after her book group asked me to chat to them after they’d read my book, Somebody I Used to Know. It was after that, that she invited me to speak to the City of London Libraries.

You can even send in a question for Carol to ask me if you wish! Just scroll down the Eventbrite page until you see ‘Contact’ and that will open up a box where you can contact the organiser.

Hope some of you can join us. .The event is free and you can sign up here on Event Brite to join us.

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.

  1. Wendy, Thanks for including us in the book discussion. It has been a couple of years since I read your book—borrowed from the San Francisco Public Library. I’ll probably just listen since it will be 4:30 am here!
    Your book has helped me better understand the challenges a friend of mine lives with. 💚 Barbara
