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. Experience musical flute interludes and special songs from Arianna during this online event.

“…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

Elizabeth Smith-Boivin, Executive Director/CEO of the Northeastern NY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, will be joining us as well.
