Jewish Family Service of North Jersey and The Sam and Nina Wolff Caregivers Support Center welcome Alex Witchel, writer for The New York Times and Author of ALL GONE: A Memoir of My Mother’s Dementia, with Refreshments.
Jewish Family Service of North Jersey is pleased to host an evening with New York Times writer and author Alex Witchel as she talks about her book ALL GONE: A Memoir of My Mother’s Dementia, With Refreshments.
ALL GONE is a personal memoir in which Alex Witchel shares the feelings of grief and helplessness brought on by her mother’s dementia, and learns to develop an appreciation for all the ways that her mother’s spirit lives on in her—her discipline, love of truth, independence and cooking. ALL GONE is a moving contribution to the national conversation about aging and dementia as well as a deeply personal and revelatory look at Witchel’s life as
a daughter, journalist, wife, mother, and now caregiver to her aging mother.
ALL GONE has been described by Kirkus Review as “a poignant, candid reminder of the new normal that now defines so many adult child-aging parent relationships.” Ina Garten writes “this is a story of love and loss told as only Alex Witchel can tell it—with the extraordinary warmth and humor she brings to all of her work.”
Light refreshments served (dietary laws observed) and books available for purchase. For more information please contact JFSNJ at 973-595-0111 or email
