Pulling Taffy at Boswell's Books Tomorrow Night

Adapted from a Boswell's Books press release:

At Boswell's Books on July 25th, at  6:30 PM, local author Tinky Weisblat will read and discuss her new book, "Pulling Taffy".  Ms. Weisblat's late mother Jan, affectionately known as Taffy, suffered from dementia.  “Pulling Taffy” pays tribute to the vibrant spirit of Jan by sharing journal entries her daughter wrote during the final year of Jan’s life.  It also includes history, family photographs, and recipes that document their time together.

This informal, candid, memoir explores the ways in which Taffy’s view of the world changes as her Alzheimer’s disease develops…and the ways in which it remains the same.  Tinky and Taffy move through frustration to joy as they learn to embrace life despite the dementia.  They survive their ups and downs with the help of community, music, nature, pets, and laughter.

“Pulling Taffy” will inspire caregivers and other people going through stressful situations. In addition, its combination of sweetness and humor will appeal to the general reading public.  This event is free and open to all.

Boswell's Books is located at 10 Bridge Street in Shelburne Falls.
