Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Meeting at 5pm on Tuesday 4th April

Fifty year old Alice Howland, a Harvard professor of cognitive psychology, is at the top of her game. Her kids are grown, her marriage secure, her career on fire, when -after mere months of forgetfulness- she finds herself in the rapidly downward spiral of early onset Alzheimers’s disease. Without memory or hope, she is forced to live in the moment, which is in turns beautiful, terrifying, and maddening.
