Authors Fighting Alzheimers!

I’m proud to announce I am taking part in a ground-breaking event on Monday January 30th, 2012 at the North York Central Library Auditorium as Writers and Industry professionals gather in support of Alzheimers research.

Too many people are touched every day by this disease. My personal connection is my mother, who struggles with losing a small piece of independance each day. With your support, we strive to bring hope to families everywhere. Come visit us, chat with authors, perhaps pick up a book (or two or three) and support this worthy cause.

Please see details below.
