Acclaimed flautist and CBS Sunday Morning arts correspondent Eugenia Zukerman reads from Like Falling Through a Cloud: A Lyrical Memoir of Coping with Forgetfulness, Confusion, and a Dreaded Diagnosis. This, her first book of poetry, expresses her vulnerability and grace in dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. Sharing their family’s story with her will be her daughter soprano Arianna Zukerman and her husband, Dick Novik. Musical flute interludes and special songs from Arianna cap this opening event of the 2020 festival.
“…in a series of poetic snapshots, her artistic aura shines through with lightness, courage, and humor…she reminds us of the delicate balance between human fragility and resilience, and how the role of poetry and music offers a balm when we are faced with psychic turbulence.” – Yo-yo Ma
Eugenia Zukerman will sign copies of her book, Like Falling Through a Cloud, following the event.
