Ah, look at all the lonely people: where do they all come from? We might find out a glimmer of an answer at this celebration of Elizabeth Gregory, a chapbook of poems that combs the inner space of every mom in search of radical humanity. Elizabeth Gregory is one of millions currently living with early onset Alzheimer’s dementia (EOAD), often referred to as “the long goodbye.” Carollo uses Beatlemania as his compass with which to find a path toward communication, understanding, and love. Elizabeth Gregory is for every mom.

Join us to celebrate this remarkable collection. Author Kevin Carollo will take those assembled on a mystery tour through verse, photography, music, and memory, and YOU are invited to participate in either of the following ways:

  1. Send a photo of a loved one with dementia, we’ll add it to a memory montage to be screened at the event:
